No don't be sorry!!!

I don't know why people even think of doing that...
Can *anyone* give a good reason (and I don't include
"because its tidier to have everything LVM") for having
root on LVM? Its just begging for trouble; like running
windows XP!

Oh and yes, mandrake 8.1 supports LVM at install; it'll even
detect previous LVM setups and incorporate them into the
install if you want!

My only worry is that Mandrake 8.1 defaults to devfs
and there was a recent message about a problem with devfs and LVM.
