Suse 9.0 installation and boot partition
I'm read tons of documentation on recommended partitioning of Linux. This is what I should have:
While installing Suse 9.0, it proposed me a partition scenario, with only / and swap, no boot partition. Why? I've read some threads in here of people not mentionning their /boot partition. Is /boot absolutely necessary? Please explain....
Also /boot must be in the first 1024 cylinders of our drive. Am I wrong by saying that the MBR = first 1024 cylinders = /boot partition?
Thanks for your help!
