I installed Centos 6.3 and looking at the disk I get the output:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
                       50G  7.3G   40G  16% /
tmpfs                 1.9G     0  1.9G   0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1             485M   63M  397M  14% /boot
                      144G  188M  136G   1% /home

I did not partition my disk so how is this happening, I have been using Ubuntu and never experienced such a problem before?

What would you prefer? Just / and /boot? – MDMarra Jun 24 '13 at 14:45

Because these are the defaults that the CentOS maintainers have decided to go with. I believe that these are inherited from a default RHEL install. You were given a choice to review these options and to change them, so I'm not sure what your actual problem is.
