The installer gives you a warning if you make /boot smaller then
75M, and grub itself uses 220K, so this should not be a problem for
most users. If you figure 6M for each kernel, initial RAM disk, and
system map, you should have room for at least 12 kernels. (6M allows
for a larger then normal initrd file.)
