You only need a /boot partition if root is ext4, because legacy grub
doesn't grok it. If you only use ext3, you can get away with two
partitions: / and swap. (I have a separate /home, but no /boot.)


this is simply not true
since F14 for sure ext4 is default, F13 i neve installed from scratch

/dev/md1 ext4 29G 8,0G 21G 28% /
/dev/md0 ext4 485M 51M 430M 11% /boot
/dev/md2 ext4 3,6T 1,2T 2,4T 34% /mnt/data
