If so why not use Guided partitioning with either partition scheme set to LVM or Standard Partitioning? It seems you'd have ended up with what you wanted:
I may have foolishly checked somewhere that offered to keep /home but 
other than that the install was plain vanilla from the DVD iso, XFCE 
rather than Gnome, via a usb flash stick.

When I get around to "fixing" this mess I will eliminate LVM, it's an 
added layer of complexity that buys me nothing. Ok when it works but ... 
Fixing means a re-install. I have become quite adept at configuring 
Fedora/XFCE my way as many times as I have done it. So far, counting 
beta, Fedora 20 three times. I even had the alpha version for a short 
time on one box.

Box10 Fedora-20/64bit Linux
