What about Debian?

Someone mentioned having made a .deb outa LVM-tools...
Where can I get it?

Im too new to LVM topics and have only done some little experiments with
a second LVMified hd in my system but failed to get a root LVM to

...so for now my knowledge is far too less to do what I suggest:

...to extend the LVM-howto. Describing benefits of LVM clearly and
having distribution specific instructions how to get a (near to) perfect
LVMified system running and spreading this HOWTO would be a way to push

...maybe some articles in Linux-Magazin, C'T and nongerman equivalents
would be nice too...

As soon as I am fit enough in "LVM on Debian" I am standby to at least
proofread and maybe extend the Debian-specific parts...
