If memory seves me right....
There are several things that must be on the root partition.
I believe that
/, etc, sbin, bin all need to be on the same partition..
/boot, /usr, /var, tmp, opt, /home can be on separate partitions.
At least that is the way I recall it..
Someone correct me if I am wrong..
