I have a small home server,
4 physical disks + 1 usb external backup disk(paranoia)
I didn't use lvm, just raid1
hda + hdb make up /boot / and /home (2x160gb)
which equate to:
hda1 + hdb1 (300mb) = /boot as md0
hdb2 + hdb2 (59gb) = / as md1
hda3 + hdb3 (100gb) = /home as md2
hdc + hdd (320gb) = /files as md3
works here in a small setup.
