	No, it isn't with LVM.

	You probably want (Global File System) or GFS.  Though I think
that one tends to assume that your storage is actually free-floating on
a Fibre Channel network, not attached to particular machines.

	LVM doesn't do stuff over a network by itself.

Have fun (if at all possible),
The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they
be properly armed.  -- Alexander Hamilton
