So, just to be sure, if I have a system that is running LVM 0.91.beta-7,
I can install LVM 1.0.4 without worries?

I'm running a SuSE 7.2 install, which uses that version of LVM & their
own SuSE-fied kernel rpm, but due to other requirements, I'm going to
need to compile my own kernel from virgin sources.  I'm going to be
building 2.4.18, specifically with the linux-abi (formerly known as
iBCS) patch, and figured I'd update everything with the latest LVM code
while I was at it.  I also remembered that I need the VFS-lock patch,
since I want to do snapshots and we're running ReiserFS.

Anything I need to beware of, before doing this?
