Thanks.  This is exactly the kind of detail I was looking for.

So, in order to upgrade to LVM2 there's no data conversion necessary, if
I understand you correctly.  That's very good news.

I might play around with it on my laptop (which runs Linux under VMware)
-- this way, if anything goes wrong, I just lose a virtual disk and not
real data.  :-)

(VMware is great for "experimenting" with filesystem code.  I haven't
actually experimented with LVM under VMware yet, though.  It'll be
interesting ...)

Thanks for your time, Heinz.  I appreciate it.
