I never had this problem with openSUSE 11.3.
I've stopped using a boot-parition long ago, but let's
have a look at
Why is that?
People told me that separate the disk on boot-swap-home is the best
way to install a linux system.
Is there a better way?
I am really interesting in that...
some boot-loaders used to have a limitation that required /boot to be on the
first 1024 cylinders of the disk. The way to guarantee that was to have a small
/boot partition in the beginning of the drive.
swap space is usually kept on a separate partition/drive for speed. You could
just as easily keep a swapfile on your root filesystem, but adding the
filesystem layer only makes it (even if only marginally) slower.
/home is easier to manage during upgrades and updates if kept separately.
