Re: to lvm or not to lvm?

Have additional hard drive, which can store any data temporary, while I'm preparing main disks. I have 160GB and 60GB drives. I have plan to make 60GB raid1 and 100GB for not very valuable data on rest of the 160GB drive. Now my VG(consisting all data) is on temporary 320GB drive and my /boot on ext3 partition is om 160GB.

What I want is to put that /boot on raid1 along with very valuable data from temporary drive (VG) and not very valuable data on that 100GB not raid part. Everything except /boot should be on LVM.

Hope my goal is clear now :)

Thank you for your reply. Looks like you're suggesting installation, but I have Etch 4.0 installed already. Wondering if it's possible to put existent /boot on ext3 partition and LVM volume group on RAID1. Or possibly it will be easier to reinstall and restore configuration.

It all depends on how much extra space you have.  Its a little like a
shell game with clear shells.
If you give us your current drive(s) layout including free space, and
your goal layout, perhaps we can help you with an implementation map.
I've totally forgotton how your drives are currently set up so I won't
make any if,then,else suggestions.
