    Is LVM Needed for Re-Install?

    I've got a Serval (serp3) with 4GB of memory and a 200 GB hard drive running 32-bit Gutsy (installed by System 76). I'd like to do a fresh install of 64-bit Hardy. Do I need to worry about LVM partitioning when I install Hardy on the Serval, or can I just use the default ubuntu partitioning? I'm not planning to do a dual boot. I just want 64-bit Hardy on the laptop - no other OS. Does LVM buy me anything?

    Thanks very much.

    No. I'd recommend *not* using LVM. It severely limits your ability to modify partition sizes later down the road.
    To err is human, to forgive is very ... dog-like.
