Golly! I just realized how that might appear! No slur on your efforts
was meant. I was just recalling the number of "panics... failed to sync"
type of messages as I learned this junk.

But I'm really here to say: I've not yet studied the new LVM stuff and
have not considered how "mirroring" might help/hinder what we are trying
to do.

But I'm strong on this "Poor Admin's Backup". At home, I've no $$ for
3Ware, etc. But commodity 100GB HDs at $40 after rebates fits right in
my budget.
