I believe you ment me with LVM, I suggested that.
I'm experimenting with a little programm that will use the
device-mapper support in the kernel to map the partitions of any disk
to /dev/mapper/<volume name>. It involves parsing the partition block
of each disk to avoid the 15 partition limit of the scsi
It shouldn't be to hard to make the program just create /dev/sda16 and
following as far as they exist once I have it running.
