RE: [linux-lvm] FW: LVM on Linux



Thanks for the clarification. I didn't see the start of this thread I don't
think, If I did, I was out to lunch.:) 
At any rate the 32/64 bit numbering issue is explained very well here, and
there is more commentary over on the XFS list too. 
Another thing is also that I believe people are already using Fibre storage
with LVM. No? Anyone?
