I started playing with LVM tonight and I am impressed... LVM + resierfs
is nice! But I have a couple problems.

Let me explain (Please offer advice if you want) I have the following
/dev/hdc1 = 1.2G
/dev/hdd2 = 7.9G
/dev/hda3 = 1.2G
/dev/sda1 = 9.11

I wanted to combine all of the above into 1 *partition* for /home. now
is LVM something I should be looking into or should I just go to linear
raid? or raid 0?

Now I create my physical volume, but when I want to create my logical I
keep recieving this error:

freedom /# lvcreate -L100G freedom
lvcreate -- only 499 free physical extents in volume group "freedom"

What am I doing wrong?

Please offer some advice, wether LVM is just overkill for me and I
should just use raid0 or linear.
