I always thought Suse would complain if you made a boot partition less

Can't you just do away with the partition? Unmount it move everything
to the root filesystem but still under /boot, re-install grub & use
Fdisk to change the boot flag over. Linux has not needed /boot on a
separate partition for a long time now and using symlinks is messy.
I have often used smaller than 75 MB for /boot and haven't seen that
complain.  Also, if you're using LVM or software RAID, /boot must not be
in either of those.

But presumably, /boot does not need to be on a primary partition.
No it doesn't. As I showed in another message, my main home system has it on hda6, which is a logical partition. On that same system, / is on an LVM partition.
