Re: LVM and install over existing installation

Ah, so if I see this right, I can configure LVM and treat it as I

So say I had this:
--- Logical volume ---
LV Name /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01
I could treat that exactly the same as /dev/hdax?
yes, you can mount LogVol01just as you would mount /dev/hdax
assuming that LogVol01 is formatted as ext3 you could use the follwing
in your fstab
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 /mountpoint ext3
defaults 0 0
as long as the OS understands LVM there should be no issue, you would
need to install LVM2 before you can use it.
If so that's awfully helpful, I assumed LVM relied on the currently
installed OS to function so by booting into another OS install I
wouldn't be able to access it.
Just another collection of nuts
