debian installer LVM


I'm doing a new install of Debian (testing) and find some questions about LVM. I haven't seen this before and don't quite know what to choose. First question is:

-Volume groups (VG)
-Logical Volumes (LG)

or leave....

not sure which to pick or what it does. Can anyone enlighten me?

Regards

If you are using sarge installer, I think it has an option for installing lvm in the first place by selecting proper installer components..

Alternative way is to boot knoppix, set up lvm from there and use deboostrap to get base system into it.

If you leave the root partition out of the lvm, you can quite easily make rest of the system to use lvm later. Also converting an installed system to lvm is not very hard if you have a spare hd space to use.
