About Fedora15 installation question

I want to ask a fedora15 disk partition question.THe disk partiton have four part,first is /boot partition,to be primary is also my want to ask.The second is swap partiton.The third is / partiton.It is root partiton.The last is /home partiton.It is extended partition.So my question is:
1.Is it the /boot partiton must be primary partiton?
2.Is the linux system first boot from the /boot partition?
3.If set the root(/) partiton as the primary partiton,the linux system first boot from root partion?
4.If the /boot and the root set no primary partition,the fout part parttion no primary partition,the system first boot from the /boot?

Only this,can you give your standard answer? : )

1. No.
2. As far as I know, grub is installed on mbr. So it first boots from mbr, followed by the boot partition.
