    For LVM, the lvm2 package contains all the necessary tools. I know
    Alasdair did some kernel fixes for lvm2 striping on >2TB partitions
    recently, though, so older kernels might not work perfectly if you're
    using stripes.

    To use genuine partitions > 2TB, though, you need alternative
    partitioning; the GPT disk label supports that, and "parted" can create
    and partition such disk labels. (Note that most x86 BIOSes can't boot
    off them, though, so don't do this on your boot disk!)
