31 Yes, that is what I will be doing; but it is not the same as the "companion"
32 and hence less familiar to me. Also the wiki certainly does help.
33 I haven't studied the raid+LVM closely yet but a quick look didn't
34 reveal how to interrupt the installation, shut off the machine, and
35 continue later.
37 Nonetheless, it is doubtless all there; just a loss of familiarity.
39 thanks,
