Re: [linux-lvm] Re: root filesystem in lvm



Hello,

Mirrored would not be such a complex thing I guess, as it simplifies to an
image on one of the mirror partitions. Important is to realise that as far
as lilo is concerned, only the partition where the boot image resides is
important (mostly the partition where /boot resides or even the /boot 
partition).
Then it is up to the kernel to find the necessary code to mount the root
partition and start init.
 
Kind regards,
