SubjectRe: *** ANNOUNCEMENT *** LVM 0.8final driver included in 2.3.47
Hi,

I'm glad that LVM finally made it into the main standard Linux kernel..

However, the docs have a big problem - they look like they're for someone
who have long experience with LVM.

I would suggest to you to re-write the howto so that less familiar people
with LVM knowledge know what to do, how to do, what is LVM (maybe some
links to other sites who can explain in details the LVM idea?)

With the current status - a pretty new Linux Sys. admin with those docs
won't find his arms and legs :)

Nevertheless - excellent work! keep up the good work pal :)
