Description of problem:
If I create a /boot partition with 256 megabytes of space, it seems wrong of
Disk Druid to chastize me for not creating a root partition with 250 megabytes
of disk space.  Shouldn't the Druid recognize /boot and take it into consideration?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create / partition, 64 MB
2.Create /boot partition, 256 MB
3.Click NEXT

Actual Results:  Disk Druid complains that more space may be needed in the root
partition.  I am not sure that Disk Druid is correct in this case.

Expected Results:  Disk Druid should recognize that /boot will hold the kernel.

It is a warning to help those unfamiliar with partitioning.  It can be savely
ignored if you have a particular partitioning need outside the norm.
