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).
