I want to dual-boot Ubuntu 14.04 and (a derivative of) OpenSuSE.  Is this
partition scheme ok?

thufir at doge:~$ sudo parted -l
Model: ATA ST500DM002-1BD14 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 500GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B
Partition Table: msdos
Disk Flags:

 2      105GB   498GB  393GB   primary  ext4

Is it a problem that sda1 is marked as a boot partition?  Isn't that
what I want?

Do I also want to mark sda2 as a boot partition?  Assuming standard
OpenSuSE install.
