Advanced setups with lvm,raid,encryption,experimental filesystems, etc. may require separate /boot partition.

EFI hardware or using a gpt partitioned boot drive on a bios motherboard have their own requirements.

My funtoo install is on one 50G ext4 partition with a 2G swap file using 2008 vintage hardware.
