Yes.. You should be able to use the 'md' driver/subsystem to create a big
virtual drive across multiple drives.
There is only one problem... a 70 Gig file won't fit... since there is a
filesize limitation (I think 2GB) So you'd have to split up the file in 2GB
parts anyway, and then it's useless to go the hard way with md or lvm
