The current suse-fied solution is just to have a small boot partition, separate from root, formatted as ext2 - grub goes there, root remains being xfs, everything works. :-)
And that's crap.
New and casual users will want to put everything in 1
partition. Make it xfs and lilo, they'll be happy. No
fsck, and if they power off their system, they won't corrupt
things -- they may lose everything anything recently written, but
maybe they should clearly know that they should set 'sync'
for disks that might just "go away" (lose power) without a
proper shut down if they can't afford to lose the last 5 minutes
Otherwise, for the occasional power-dip -- they at
least don't have to worry about corruption or 'fsck' times
on anything.
