I don't have an answer to the original problem, but I want to address the
other remarks:

My box doesn't know that, so it's been happily working for over a year
without a boot partition.

I have, over the past year, changed from ext3 to reiserfs, back to ext3, then
to (currently) reiserfs, all the time without a boot partition.

AFAIK, the kernel (2.4.10 and higher) handles both ext3 and reiserfs without
complaints. As of late, I have the system on one HD and the swap partition on
another, without problems.
