Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

It all depends which way your going to do it....If you want to use the GUI then linux will create the ,/ and swap as LVM ..So just use the linux GUI tool and add create the LVM ...command line is easier to me

Reason: Boot cannot be LVM
How would you recommend setting up my partitions under "custom layout"? I have a
sda - free - 953869MB and also
sdb - free - 953869MB.
I would to have these drives merged into one volume for the majority of space, which would be mounted at /data
Would I need to create /boot, /, and swap with the rest LVM on sda and sdb?
Choice is yours. I think you're considering raid0 or raid1 here. You can have raid0, 2Tb-(os space) or raid1, 1Tb-(os space). The former will lose everything if either disk fails. The latter will allow you to replace that failed disk and rebuild the new disk from the remaining good disk.
