See the documentation for --virt-path in the koan manpage.

There are three ways storage can be specified:

-- basic disk images on the filesystem (default behavior)
-- specifying a logical volume group that has free space in it, where 
then koan will carve a paritition out of it named after the virtual machine
This allows for using a common LVM group for all your virtual machines, 
which is rather useful.
-- specifying a specific partition for koan to use as storage.

I hope that answers the question!

Recently a few folks have been asking for ways to specify multiple 
"disks" for their configurations ... and that's something I am going to 
be looking at.
