LVM isn't in the xS 2.1 releases, but it is in 3.0.  RH won't give you
support for stuff they don't provide, so you'd have to goto 3.0 if you
wanted supported LVM from RH.  3.0 has 1.0.5 in the kernel w/ 1.0.3 utils.
Both are probably modified, knowing RH.

I have no idea about Secure Path.

Depends what you're going for I suppose.  If you want software RAID, LVM
isn't going to do anything for you.  However, VxVM will cost you extra and
you'll have to deal with Veritas vs LVM which comes standard with the OS.

I personally prefer VxVM over LVM in general, but I also have never
bought VxVM for a Linux box...  I'll either use LVM, or more likely I'll
let HW RAID tools handle the segmenting of disks into volume sizes I want.

YMMV. :)
