Now Fedora by default installs a 500 MB /boot, which should be

I believe a /boot partition became necessary in F11 because (I adopted
Fedora with the 11 version):

Since Fedora uses LVM by default and GRUB doesn't support that either, in
practice you will need to keep using the Ext3 filesystem for the /boot
partition. This is the recommended setup and is how Anaconda sets it up by
default. To prevent boot issues, Anaconda will not let you format a /boot
partition with Ext4.


Note that Rawhide (and hence Fedora 12) will support Ext4 on the boot


Isn't it now possible to revert to not using a /boot partition and having
the full / space for installation?
