Everythings could be done during the CentOS installation.

On my servers I usually use software RAID-1. I create a /boot
partition at the very beginning of the disk (100MB should be lergely
enough for that purpose) and use the remaining space with LVM (swap
and as much partitions as I can :). I always keep some GB unallocated
if I want to later grow a partition.

Give LVM a try, you will never go back after :).
