[linux-lvm] volume group setup question



i'm a LVM newbie trying to figure out how to setup volume groups on a new
Linux system. the underlying physical volume will be a hardware RAID5
disk. i'm thinking about having a non-LVM root partition and a logical
volume per each of the major mount points in the system (/usr, /home,
/tmp, /var etc.) but i'm having problems deciding whether to start with a
volume group per logical volume or just one volume group with all the
logical volumes in it?

is there any benefit from partitioning the RAID disk and having a separate
volume group per mount point (with just one logical volume to start with)
or should i have the RAID disk in just one partition, create one volume
group and have all of the mount point logical volumes in that one volume
group?
