Since rescue mode is text based, there would be lots of differences. There is a little overlap, mostly concepts. I plan on including LVM, though I find LVM very annoying. I don't see any conflict or duplication between his page and my proposed page. Actually, I see the pages as complimentary. If Phil is going to broaden the scope of his page, then, of course, I would withdraw my request. However, I would recommend against having too much on a single page.
