Likely in my mind. BTW, I've been using LVM on all my notebooks and workstations since FC1/RHEL3 and have been using it on all my servers for nearly 7 years. I've never encountered a problem that couldn't be fixed with the LVM commands other than outright hardware (i.e. storage) failure. -- Lamont Peterson <lamont gurulabs com> Senior Instructor Guru Labs, L.C.
