Question Dynamic disks


Hello,

Can linux manage 2 or more hard disks in a similar way that Win2K do with dynamic volumes?

Im installing a linux server with 2 hard disks and I would like both to act as a single partition...

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance!

have a look on google for LVM Logical Volume Management. pretty straight forward afaik. I presume that you are aware of how unix uses different drives / partitions to build an overall filesystem? If you're not aware of it then you may not need LVM at all.
