Logical Volume Manager

Has anyone else set this up in linux? I just bought a 250GB drive in compliment to my 200GB and 120GB drives. I setup the drives so they are all combined. Right now I am at 344.67GB ( 250+120 ) while I copy the rest of the data over from the 200GB drive so I can relabel and add it to the physical volume. Anyone else intrested in setting this up? I can give a quick howto if needed. So far its pretty exciting as I will now be able to sort everything onto one logical drive instead of a bunch of different mount points.

Will this work with FAT volumes too? I have 4 FAT and 2 NTFS partitions on this machine, along with 5 linux partitions. I have so many because there are 3 different drives and I have used multiple OS's over the past couple of years.

No, it will not work with FAT partitions, you have to use Linux LVM Partition Type.
