 Right... as long as it's large enough to hold all of the things that
 ought to be on it, like /bin and /sbin, for instance, but small
 enough to be entirely contained below the 1024 cylinder.  It seems
 easier and less error prone to just say "make a small 5-10Mb
 partition and mount it on /boot" than to try and figure the size to
 make that / partition.
