The /boot partition is where Fedora boots from. It contains a
grub/grub.conf file for booting various Fedora kernels. I need some
other partition to use for the main boot loader.

There are certainly other ways of organizing the system to do the same
kind of chainloader thing. I don't claim my way is the absolute best,
but it works for me.
