Bigger /boot

The installer now sets a /boot size of 768M by default; more space for kernels and modules, plus disks these days can take it.

Incidentally, if you’re compiling new versions of your kernel, it’s a good idea to copy your kernel file to kernel.good, and then use that to boot if the version you then compile doesn’t work.  Someday, that will totally save you.
