That's a general problem then, I suspect.

Yeah, don't make a seperate /boot partition. SILO is not like LILO. It
actually reads the ext2 filesystem directly. This is something I could not
solve in the boot-floppies easily, so you have to work around it. I don't
think you'll lose much by not having /boot on its own partition.
