Absolutely - plus, we just need more space:)

Does it make any difference whether to use full disk device for your LV
(i.e., /dev/sdc or some such) or make a partition instead (say, /dev/sdc1
covering the whole disk end to end)? I mean, are there any pro's and con's
to using either as extra space for the logical group?
