HI, I'm not exactly new to using Linux, but I am not technically proficient in coping with what I'm needing to accomplish.
I want to install Ubuntu 12.04 using LVM and including all 4 physical hard drives in my computer.
so far I have been able to install using the alternative cd using LVM but only on one drive. once installed I haven't been able to add the other drives into the LVM (sorry if the terminology isn't correct)
here are the questions I need answered and maybe help with.
1. can I get the Ubuntu alt. cd installer to use all 4 drives as one logical volume during the install? if so how?
2. if the answer to question 1 is no, can I add the other 3 drives to the logical volume after the install? if so how?
someone suggested using Fedora as it makes it easy to accomplish what I want, but I'm having reliability issues that I never had with Ubuntu and I'd like to move back.
here is what my current LVM looks like under Fedora 14:
here are some of my system stats.
