Hi list,

im wondering, that on the lvcreate man-page stands "specifying -i3 would 
use 3 devices for striped logical volumes, 4 devices for RAID 4/5, and 5 
devices for RAID 6"

Imho there is a Raid-5 device with 3 disks possible. Is there an error 
in the documentation or does lvm need more stripes for Raid-5 than 
normally used?
