[linux-lvm] LVM and RAID

Hi all!

I didn't find clear information about how to use LVM on an (Software)
RAID-Mirror (or RAID-5). All I found, were problems: LVM uses Partition Type
0x8E but Linux Soft-RAID uses 0xFD - this dosn't look very compatible... A
solution would be to use Hardware-RAID of course. But I'm wondering if there
is a way to use Software-RAID and LVM together - I cannot believe that I am
the first one with this question! Am I?
