What is LVM to a Windows guy
I'm trying to load a CentOS server, figured it would be good practice. But when I go to load it, the default is to wipe whats there and use the default layout. that only has / and /boot, then there's a bunch of LVM stuff, which I'm not sure what that is. I tried reading about it, but that didn't clear it up. can anyone explain in simple terms what it is, and if i would really want to use it for a file server?
