Are there any tips on converting an existing ext3 / to LVM?

Be carefull; as I know converting an EXISTING ext3 to LVM loses all data. Jean-Luc, can you confirm this ??

Tell us *how* you plan to convert it to lvm.

Reading section 12.3 on the LVM HowTo; there is no good way migrating
an
existing filesystem ( with data) to lvm !
I'm in doubt if LVM is very usefull following what this howto
recommend.
EVMS more suitable?

Sorry, I mean 12.1

I don't find it neither, do you have any reference? http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO/index.html

I've done the migration some time ago from etx3 non LVM to xfs LVM. Only the migration of the root filesystem is a bit tricky. But this is not really more diffult that moving a (non LVM) system to a new HDD.
