Here it comes:
I have two disks, currently on hda and hdb.
10MB of /boot
1GB for SWAP
the lot (18GB) in LV with hdb

19GB in LV with hda

The LV with 18GB+18GB has
	all of these are stripped, so they are like raid0 (or should be)
	/home/stuff is not stripped, because it is on hdb where hda has boot and swap

On hdc and hdd I currently have my DVD Drive, and my CD burner.

PS: Please try and keep your answer simple, as I am not very well skilled 
concerning LVM, allthough I am confident about my general Linux skills.
