[CentOS] /boot partition too small

 Do i need to do something special or is it as easy as:
- save the contents of the current /boot - umount /boot and change the /etc/fstab so it doesn't mount again-  create a boot directory that is in the root  filesystem- copy the contents back
I realize the physical/current /boot will be a waste of space but it's not that big so it's fine.   
I thought i probably have to make configuration changes of some sort.
Again I apologize in advance since I am not really good at this (partition/file system).  I have tried searching but am never sure exactly what I should try.   I need to find the "for dummies" version(s) of this. Thanks again.

Indeed, /boot does not need to be a separate partition. I have /boot 
within the root filesystem on my test boxes where I know I will need to 
install many / all kernels for testing / development purposes for the 
specific reason that I do not need to set a size for /boot and it can 
just consume whatever it needs from the rest of the filesystem.
