I've been struggling with this same LVM issue. I want to install suse 9.3 without removing my Suse 9.1 install.
My Partitions look like:
Device Size F Type
/dev/hda 152.6 GB 6Y160P0
/dev/hda1 10.5 GB Win95 FAT32 LBA
/dev/hda2 101.9 MB Linux native
/dev/hda3 121.3 GB Linux LVM
/dev/hda4 20.6 GB Extended
/dev/hda5 502.0 MB Linux swap
/dev/hda6 20.1 GB Linux native
/dev/hdb 37.2 GB 6L040L2
/dev/hdb1 31.4 MB Dell Utility
/dev/hdab2 37.2 GB HPFS/NTFS
/dev/VolGroup00 121.3 MB LVM2 VolGroup00
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 120.7 GB LV
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 512.0 MB LV
Yast wants to load the install on /dev/hda6 - That's where suse 9.1 is installed and I'd like to keep that.
I'd like to know how to install suse 9.3 on /dev/hda3, but first Yast needs to have the Linux LVM removed from the
Volume group (/dev/VolGroup00) before it will format it. Is this possible?
