Question 2 Drives in LVM- Not What I want


I have 2 drives in my system, I would like to have them set up so one is the system drive and the other is for data (format pref. VFAT). As a result of the installation I performed, I can not gain access to the drive at all.

Quote:
fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 14 9729 78043770 8e Linux LVM

Disk /dev/sdb: 82.3 GB, 82348277760 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 10011 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 1 10011 80413326 8e Linux LVM
So it seems the sdb is part of LVM, but this is not what I though I asked for. So how do I go about changing this.

ALSO, just to make things more complicated than I need to, is it posible to move /home to this drive? I would like to have it here, but am unsure of my ability to utilize this later when I screw up the system drive.

Don't use LVM myself but experts here should be able to advise you how to disengage the second disk.

You may need a re-install to tell FC5 that you have your own destination of /home.

The two-disk LVM is what you have allowed FC5 to create. You may not know that you can opt out of it.

Ok, so I can't just change my /home whenever I want. I though so. So I guess I just want to find out how to get it out of the LVM.
Thanks
