That would be a serious error. Often /boot is a special partition
located within the first 500 MB of the disk. Once I had it being
a link to /dos/linux, which as you may guess was a FAT filesystem.

BTW, /boot/`uname -r` is the first place in which
procps looks for the the data. Red Hat and Debian
both seem to prefer this location, aside from some /
braindamage that Debian sometimes uses.
