"On some i386 machines, it may be necessary for /boot to be located on a
separate partition located completely below cylinder 1024 of the boot device
due to hardwar constraints.
Certain MIPS system require a /boot paertition that is mounted MS-DOS
filesystem or whatever other filessystem type is accessible for the firmware.
This may result in restrictions with respect to usable filenames within /boot
(only for affected systems.)
