So, am I right to conclude that if I have a (trivial) volume with one
of 2 discs at raid1 or 3 at raid5 and want to extend that I have to add
3 discs for my volume-on-to-of-raid5 or 2 for the mirrored set (mix
It seems possible to add one physical partition but if that disc crashes
I would
loose all data since the filesystem would depend on information on both
(the physical and the raid abstracted d.o.), right?

Another question. I'm trying to compile the utilities on a glibc 2.1
with no success. The LVM-home page mentions that a small patch is needed
I can't seem to find that anywhere ..... suggestions anybody?
