Partitions LVM

Hi everyone.

I have 15GB unpartitioned in my hard disk drive and I am planning to install Fedora 8.
Is this space enough to install Fedora?
Possibly I will work with databases and learn how to program. Considering this and remembering security measures, what partitions should I create?
I will use LVM except for /boot partition so will need to create a physical volume, at least one volume group, and several logical volumes, is it true? what the relation between the size of the physical volume, the size of the volume group and the size of logical volumes?
can you give advices and clarify?

Thanks in Avance

It's depend on the size of your database for 15GB drive. Standard Fedora or Red Hat will create a separate /boot partition and the rest of the space as a single / mount point with LVM. Of course, you can manually create volume group with multiple logical volume.
