Is LVM sensitive to mixing different drives w/different specs? If I mix IDE and SATA drives are there issues?

Thanks

You can combine any block devices using LVM.
You could combine an external USB drive an internal hard disk and a floppy disk using LVM if you wanted to.

The slowest device will be a bottleneck for the performance.

I don't think there is any reason not to use LVM across a SATA and IDE drive.
