Re: [PLUG] LVM partition re-arrangement?

I would recommend the System Rescue CD for dealing with LVM.  I've found 
it has great support for working with all sorts of hard disk formats and 
configurations.  It supports MD-raid, LVM, etc.  I think it also does 
dm-raid, and other stuff.  Incidentally, it also has PartImage, which is 
a tool for taking an efficient image of a filesystem (e.g. not capturing 
unused blocks) and restoring it to a different partition.  It can't 
resize the filesystem--you have to restore to a same-size or larger 
partition, then manually grow the FS afterwards, but if you want to make 
sure you have everything, exactly the same, it's great.
