100% disk space on boot is in use?

My firs attempt to install Linux to my computer failed totally. After
it I had to reinstall all. The first Linux was Fedora core 3 or 4.
After trying other distros I recently installed Fedora Core 5 which I
like very much. It's slick (very fast) and looks nice.
But every time I start Fedora a message appears: "100% disk space on
boot is in use". Does that be a problem in the future?
Recently I have three hard disks on my computer as you can see:

hda and sda are used by Windows, except hda1 which is a souvenir from
my last trip to Fedora Core world , what to do with hda1?

hdb is a large disk 160 GB and allocated for Linuxes. There were some
partitions which I had thought for Fedora's use. Unfortunately I was
frighten while installing Fedora because I remember the previous
Fedora installation. I did not find the way to get partition manager
to do what I wanted so I gave all hdb to Fedora. The installation
seemed to proceed well, but after it I could not start neither Fedora
nor Windows. Fortunately I could repair Windows installation and also
the Grub, thanks to good advice from different countries.

I know, that LVM makes me possible to change logical volumes but not
just the one were /boot is residing. I am not very keen on installing
Fedora again, but is there any other possibility?

Is it possible to repartition hdb in Fedora so that I could install an
other distro also to hdb?
