Yes. There's a separate ext3 partition, /boot, with 102 MB, that's
/dev/hda2  and it isn't in an LVM.

Problem now, as I just replied to Vandaman, is that my CentOS 5
Installation DVD got damaged, after I reinstalled GRUB and before I
could modify two configuration files. I have several Live CDs, but
don't know how to get real "root" privileges with them.

Sorry for delay in my reply. Our ADSL was down.
