I've just discovered LFS and read (quickly) through the book.

I've noticed that there doesn't appear to be any recommendation of 
creating a separate /boot partition near the beginning of a disk, to 
ensure it's within the first 1024 cylinders.  

I believe this restriction no longer applies to recent versions of lilo 
used with recent motherboards, but in general isn't it safer to do it? 
Or am I totally confused as usual?
