You mean to say within the LVM if I use parted that way I will be able
to create two different filesystems existing together.
Until now what ever I came across internet is mkfs.ext3 and mkswapfs but
they work on two different LVM and will convert those LVM into ext3
and swap respectively.
I want to break one LVM into 2 one of which I want to populate with a
root filesystem
and another with swap.
