	I have one more, and the most critical machine on which to 
replace F11 with F12 -- and I picked up a hint the other day that LVM was 
the reason I kept being unable, by any means I could find, to increase 
the size of /boot. I would like very much to get rid of LVM -- but have 
no clue how.

	I know Anaconda offers an option to *hide* LVM, but I don't 
recall any choice to eschew it entirely. Am I just having a memory lapse?

	If not, would some kind soul please explain to this subtechnoid 
how to do it?
