[RndTbl] RAID and LVM

Has anyone used both RAID and LVM in combination? I'm wondering whether 
there is any preference to setting up the RAID device first, then using 
LVM on top of that, versus setting up LVM then putting RAID on the LVM 
volumes. Does that make any sense?

I just set up two drives in RAID 1 and they're resynching now. I was 
going to set up LVM on /dev/md0 once that's done. Are there any 
disadvantages to this?
