My research indicates a lot of changes, in this regard, since Woody;
especially in the more recent 2.6.x kernels. I have found several
HOWTO's based on Woody, and favoring Raid0/1; and most of those were
written for Woody and 2.4.x kernels.
Where is there a HOWTO for LVM on RAID that focuses on Sarge?
Where is there a HOWTO for LVM on RAID that focuses on Raid5?
How can this be done at initial install; rather than build on one disk,
then build the Raid5 post-install?
Which is better as boot loader in this scenario, Lilo or Grub?
Is it better to leave a partition outside of the LVM? Which partition?
Root (/)? /boot?
Can this be done with everything on the Raid5?
Can this be done with everything on the LVM?
What do you think?
