I typically make the volume group match the hostname and the logical
volumes match the filesystem (so the system "flea.hiwaay.net" has
/dev/flea/usr, /dev/flea/tmp; / is /dev/flea/root).  Making the volume
group distinct is good if you have a need to move a drive from one
system to another (having two VolGroup00 is NOT good), and naming the
logical volumes sensible just makes it much easier to tell what is what.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
