I'm not going to be able to answer this, but I"m interested in the  
answer, as it relates to a question I have.

I had the idea of using rsync to keep a second internal HD mirrored  
to my main HD as a backup.  Since Fedora (K12ltsp 4.2.0) uses the LVM  
for everything that's not /boot I can't figure out how to mount  / so  
that rsync can do it's thing.  I think the answer to ssanders'  
question lies in how to deal with the LVM as well. Unfortunately, I  
don't know that answer.  Anyone out there have an idea?
