I wasn't suggesting changing your drives, but I would suggest rethinking 
your partitioning.  I don't know how much data you have on your zfs 
partition, but I'd suggest tarring up the LFS partition to another 
location and resize the lfs partition.

At this point, these are just suggestions.  It is your system and you 
can do whatever you want.
