Second Harddrive - LVM
I have two harddrives... My first install of Linux(and mythtv) I formated the first drive like...

/dev/sda1 /boot ext3
/dev/sda2 swap N/A
/dev/sda3 / ext3
/dev/sda5 N/A LVM
AUDIO /audio xfs
VIDEO /video xfs

and everything works great. Now I want to add a second HD and format it in xfs and make the /video directory appear bigger. I dont know how to do this at all. Do I go through the install again?

Is there a better place to post this?

I think the solution is
/sbin/fdisk /dev/sdb
mkfs -t xfs /dev/sdb1

except I dont know what I am doing in fdisk plus the man sucks. disk druid was much easier...

in fdisk i do

"n" which creates a new partition.
"p" primary
"1" partition 1
"1" which tells it where to start
"xxx" the max value cause I want the whole thing to be /video

now my question is... it was set to Linux has a ID. do I want to change the ID to "Linux LVM"?
