It seems complicated !!
I do not undertstand, it also seems to be a step back ?
Why was possible with FC6 is not with FC7 ?
I do not have a Raid.
It look like that by default lvm is installed, is it lvm2 (on a FC7) ?
Then it looks that I "only" have to modify the configuration file: /etc/lvm/lvm.conf
Can I have an example ? Or is there a configuration tool ?
Can I have a FC8 running on the first hdx (x < 15), and a FC6 booting on
the sda16 ?
Is there any tool to split in 2 disks (sda and sdb) an unique physical
disk ? Does lvm do it ? If yes, how I do to have sda16 becoming sdb0 ?
By the way, if I remember correctly, I used Parted from a dvd live
(Gparted 0.3.1.1) and
it does not want to create partitions higher sda16.
Is there a DVD live which could do it ?
