I'm currently testing another file system which supports LVM and online
extension: XFS. I was able to patch kernel and install XFS utilities on
FC1 without any problems. It seems to works fine, but I will make more
tests within the next days.

But, if tests are good I think I will use xfs for all devices that have
LVM & ALC enable on it, and the rest will probably be ext3 (like /, /tmp
& /var).

Thanks for your answer.

Yanick
