Creating a LVM that uses XFS

Hey All,

Using the LVM under Fedora 10, I have no problem creating a logical volume between two disks and having the system recognize it. But I'm wanting to try formatting the lv with the XFS file system instead of EXT2/3. There is no option in the LVM manager. I have a bunch of audio and video files that I would like to place on this setup and get away from using my NTFS file system.

Can you create a XFS file system that is a LVM?

I don't know about Fedora's LVM manager, but doing it manually, any file system can be placed on a logical volume.
