RE: SS5 install progressing, but have a question...

As long as /boot is not a separate mounted partition under /, no you won't
need a separate /boot partition, since your root is less than 1gig.  My
problem stems from an older boot prom and following how Suse does things.
(and how Debian implies things can be done, but doesn't correctly set things
up, apparently)  I'm trying to figure out what I did wrong in the setup, and
how to boot the system as it stands now.  Once I get it booted, I can fix
the problem, its just getting it booted.  I've since re-read stuff on silo,
and see I can do an ls and see file names, so I'll try that tonight and see
how far I can get.

I have set up the / partition on my SS5 to be 999MB and no /boot
partition, (after I forgot the first time and I run into the same
problem), and it works fine now. No need for a separate /boot I think?
