        Yes, I've been looking there and lvm> pvdisplay shows all three
        drive full. But full with what? This is a terrible system,
        there's no way to know what's "filling" those drives! I don't
        believe they are full of my data. I was considering unplugging
        two of them to see how the system acts? But that's a hell of a
        way to troubleshoot  a software problem it seems to me.

        I will probably have to move files on to my NFS server until I
        can rework the whole mess when I'm ready to install F-15.
