Re: MBR vs /boot

said by Rexter:

Why would you create /boot, when grub can just be installed in the MBR?

One reason for me, is that I install linux in an encrypted LVM. So "/boot" is not encrypted, but everything else is. The code to manage the crypto goes in the unencrypted "/boot" (as part of the INITRD).
