Configure LVM in Fedora 9

FedoraAside from one small, but very important difference, configuring Linux Logical Volume Manager (LVM) in Fedora 9 is just about the same as configuring it in Foresight Linux, CentOS, and StartCom. All four distros use the Anaconda installer.

Fedora 9, however, uses a version of Anaconda which has support for encrypting the system, encrypting partitions, and logical volume. So, you could configure LVM in Fedora 9 by using the tutorial we wrote for configuring LVM in Foresight as a guide.

If you choose to encrypt the system as shown in the image below, you will be asked for a passphrase which will be required during system boot. This option is not available in the version of Anaconda used by Foresight, CentOS, and StartCom. Note that the option here has nothing to do with LVM configuration, but it’s an import feature to point out.. If you installing Fedora 9, we strongly recommend that you enable this option.
