    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.
     1# install Squeeze
     2 # Configure each drive with a 1G partition and a rest-of-the-space partition, as RAID
     3 # Create a RAID1 for the 1G partitions
     4 # Create a RAID1 for each pair of rest-of-the-space partitions
     5 # Create an ext3 /boot on the 1G RAID1
     6 # Create an LVM volume group named after the machine's short hostname
     7 # Create an LV called "swap" that is the same size as the machine's physical RAM
     8 # Create an LV called "root" that is 50G ext4
     9
     10# ??? F11 will suggest ext4, DON'T USE IT.
    1511#   - New filesystem, so it's scary
    1612#   - The hosts can't mount it
