As for Ubuntu and Arch on same machine, Ubutnu was a good way for me to 
learn. Once I felt comfortable, I switched to Arch, and NEVER LOOK BACK 
!!  :-)
But I am still a, let's say a n00b++, and this issue is puzzling me.
Yes, /boot and /usr are not on the root /, and you are right, the boot 
CAN NOT be empty, it is just NOT mounted.
It seems I can do everything from Ubuntu, but I am not so sure to know 
how. I will try to figure out, and LEARN, again and again...
