FWIW, Alexander uses LVM for everything (I think), and the LFS server
(setup by Gerard) is on an LVM raid. So, it can't be that bad. But, I
agree that if you don't know how LVM works, it's a lot easier to use
real partitions. Alternatively, he can create two partitions and let
Fedora use LVM in one with LFS in the other. Using LVM on a root
partition in LFS is a no go unless you start using Bryan Kadzban's
initramfs tools and build all the userspace tools.
