Not using LVM makes things more complex if the partition sizes you choose at 
install time end up not matching the type of data you install.  That then 
leads to doing nasty things like moving trees of files to a different file 
system and having sym-links between them which among other things causes 
problems with SE Linux.

In many ways LVM is the simple way of doing it!
