        SuSE is moving most if not all of their boot-related binaries off of 
"/" and
putting
them in /usr, requiring that you either have 1 partition for / and /usr or you 
run
their initrd that will pre-mount /usr on "/".  Supposedly this is a requirement
of moving the the MS-compat boot architecture, "systemd" and is being done by 
all
the distros... (supposedly)...  At least RedHat and SuSE are going that way...

        It's great to boot up in single-user from your hard disk and be told 
mount
needs libs on a yet-to-be mounted partition...
