Redhat Linux (RHEL 3 AS) : LVM


I have just installed RHEL 3 AS and I'm new to Linux. Is it possible to put the partitions /dev/hda2 and /dev/hda3 in a volume group under the control of LVM after installtion, if so can someone pls advise, if not why. Also can I only put the above partitions into a volume group when installing Linux, if so how, pls advise.

It can be done at either stage. At install, it can be set up with disk-druid when partitioning. After the fact, it's (near's I can remember) pvcreate, vgcreate, lvcreate, then mke2fs.
Details here:

I think the OP is asking about converting a standard partition into an LV, which is not possible without a lot of hoop jumping. you can certainly add a brand new PV on a blank partition, but you can not preserve the data the way that is requested.
