Hi everybody, I am new to the list and hope you will excuse my (perhaps) 
silly questions.

1) I have seen in the LVM documentation that the program is divided into:

  - A kernel module
  - a set o binaries (commands etc.)

I?d like to know whether it is possible to use LVM WITHOUT a kernel 
module.
    

No.

  
2) How can I perform mirroring using LVM? I know the kernel can do that 
on local disks. Is it possible for the kernel of  two clustered machines 
to mirror two disks on an external storage?
    

LVM doesn't support mirroring ATM.  Try the software raid driver (md).
