I have a similar setup with my IDE drive.  I would suggest just making the
"/boot" directory the mount point for the small initial partition.  (I
needed this to get around the BIOS limitations to use LILO).  Here's my

/dev/hdb2       /               ext2    defaults        0       1
/dev/hdb1       /boot           ext2    defaults        0       2
/dev/hdb3       none            swap    sw              0       0

red:/etc$ df
Filesystem         1024-blocks  Used Available Capacity Mounted on
/dev/hdb2            1493162 1336422   110443     92%   /
/dev/hdb1               4358    2048     2310     47%   /boot
