I use this on my home server (mail, video, audio, backups). Its great
to be able to shuffle partitions around... seems to work fine. soon
I'll go lvm over raid. I don't know about booting LVM, though. I think
you still need traditional partitions for that. The lvm website has
pretty good documentation, IIRC, and its really pretty easy to use.
