One of the great things about Linux if you're an HP-UX admin is that both use LVM. There are minor differences in the implementation but if you know the HP-UX LVM commands you know the Linux ones. Of course that can be said for most commands in general until you get to pure administration aspects. e.g. There is no Mirror/UX for LVM on Linux - you have to use mdadm to do software RAID - on the plus side this gives you more than just the RAID 1 capability though.
By the way this board doesn't have an HP-UX area but does have them for Solaris and AIX. Admins say it is because IBM and Sun have agreed to support the section for those OSes.
