Bug#772461: Update installation-guide for no separated /usr

Package: installation-guide
Tags: patch

Hi all,

I've noticed this change (some times ago now ...) :

> partman-auto (123) unstable; urgency=medium
> .
>   [ Ben Hutchings ]
>   * Combine / and /usr partitions in 'multi' recipes. Closes: #652275

I think that this will need some rewording in the installation manual.
I've found some references to /usr and tried to adapt them, see
attached patch. (build OK)
Thanks for your comments.
