   One can choose to custom partition the hd. There is no requirement that
   /boot be on its own partition, and I've never done that myself.

The big advantage of a separate /boot partition in Jay Hart's case is
that it can be shared between multiple OS versions that otherwise have
distinct filesystems, which simplifies the grub.conf setup: all
entries refer to different vmlinuz/initrd entries on the same boot
partition.
