1# install Hardy
2# this involves complicated partitioning (with lvm)
3# the popular version of Grub doesn't cope with this.
4# Thus, we need a boot partition not under LVM
5# allocate about 1G for /root ext3 filesystem
6# partition the two disks the same way
7# that means you have two disks, each with a 1G partition and
8# a "rest-of-the-space"G partition
9# now, combine the two 1G partitions into a RAID 1 (as /boot ext3)
10# take the two other partitions, another RAID 1 (set up as lvm)
11# create one volume group the same as the host
12# in that volume group, create two lvs one of them named root (ext3)
13# and one named swap (copy sizes, 10G root and 2G swap)
14# F11 will suggest ext4, DON'T USE IT.
15#   - New filesystem, so it's scary
16#   - The hosts can't mount it
17#   - Grub can't cope with it
