Yeah, I meant to include LVM volumes in the general partition meaning. I
wanted to know if you use/prefer/recommend partitions/LVM over files.
Obviously, files are so much easier to maintain. I now have a test VM
running on an LVM volume and am now wondering if there are other methods
to move it around for instance as what Xen provides (I read there's a
system migration feature, but i didn't read that up yet).
