Hi,
Thx for the Link!!! , I am following this document to test it in the LAB ,I pulled a drive from the server and edit the /etc/fstab file but the messages is that its a read-only file and it can't be modified.
What do I need to do?

Thanks
B

You should have edited the /etc/fstab first and then pulled drive from server. Although there are ways to get out of your current situation I suggest you dont divulge into them - you'll definitely go off track from your LVM experimentation.

Thx for the reply folks!, you will never know when you will fall into this kind of situation.
Yes,I checked the File permissions and it is rw-r-r- and still I can't modify the file
