This is a FAQ.

It isn't installed in the filesystem.  It's only installed in the boot
sector.  [That's the big advantage that makes it worth the aesthetic
limitations -- it isn't dependent on any of the OS partitions to be
able to boot the other OS.]

On the install CDROM, it's in /tools

That's in the install CDROM under /tools as well.
