[linux-lvm] some questions

Hi there,

I have some questions:

- In http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO/, there is a guide to convert
a root filesystem to LVM1 (13.8). Is there any guide to convert a root
filesystem to LVM2?

- It is LVM2 stable enough?, or by now, and for a production system,
is preferable LVM1?

- Several times, I had to recover data from hard disks without LVM; in
those cases, I boot with a live GNU/Linux CD, mount the partitions,
and copy the files. Can this be done with disks with LVM?, how?, which
live CD do you recommend for this task?.

Thanks very much,
