You only need a /boot partition if root is ext4, because legacy grub 
doesn't grok it.  If you only use ext3, you can get away with two 
partitions: / and swap.  (I have a separate /home, but no /boot.)


this is simply not true
since F14 for sure ext4 is default, F13 i neve installed from scratch

/dev/md1      ext4     29G  8,0G   21G  28% /
/dev/md0      ext4    485M   51M  430M  11% /boot
/dev/md2      ext4    3,6T  1,2T  2,4T  34% /mnt/data
