And goodbye to my to my customary installation method of loading installation 
kernel and initrd from my many little 200M /boot partitions that don't have 
room for being made larger. Good thing the two files needn't be located the 
same place, but it makes keeping track of where they are more complex. I 
guess I can use home's root or give home's root an install dir, and put even 
kernel there too. Or, maybe on my user/local partition. Or, on a FAT or NTFS
