Another basic question regarding the use of lvm. If I have traditionally 
partitioned harddrive running debian Etch, can I make those partitions use 
lvm without loosing any data? I have been reading the HOWTO at 
http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO/ and it does not mention whether all 
these commands vgcreate etc., work destructively or non-destructively.

Any ideas?
