To what extend does the /boot have to match the / ? Cab I use the /boot 
within the / for the old system to boot the / for the new system? As long 
as I take care to keep it updated with enough extra kernels and stuff?

Or, more plausibly, would it be enough for /boot to be outside LVM on 
RAID?  Or does all of / have to be there?
