Question question about LMV


ok. so i was installing ubuntu 10.10 and was shown this:


| **********************UBUNTU 10.10 (Maverick) Server Setup********************* |
| ______________________________________________________________________________ *|
| |-----------------------------| Partition Setup |-----------------------------| |
| | -------------- Please select the size for the Logical Volume -------------- | |

Does this mean i am inputing the size of the initial parrtion or the max size that it can expand to?

Thanks,

The initial. You can always add more drives/space later.

Thank you! i have searched high and low and couldnt find an answer for this. I kind of thought that, but i was confused because of how it was worded in that prompt. so i just put 'max' into that field. Most likely I was simply overthinking the situation, but regardless, thank you for the answer. I will use this knowledge for future installs.

Thanx
