If your BIOS supports booting directly from the USB
drive, then there is a phase of installation where you
are prompted to specify which disk will have grub
installed on it. In that phase, be sure to specify the
disk which corresponds to the USB drive; for example
/dev/sdb  (as opposed to /dev/sda, which I gather would
be your windows? boot disk).

Good luck,
