Just a simple question here... why does gentoo give me a link in the root of my /boot partition called boot?

Is this mainly for people who don't understand grub so they can do things like type "(hd0,0)/boot/kernel-2.6.x" when they should really just type "(hd0,0)/kernel-2.6.xx"

I'd like to delete this symlink. I really hate it. I think it wants my girlfriend.

I came up with a solution, you just have to pass the right parameters to grub when you install the bootloader.
