Revised Fedora virt-install command

I got tired of having to muck around with kpartx and such whenever a domU went down.

So I decided to just go with 4 LVs per domU – root, home, swap and boot.

The command to create the LVs is just one really long one, the original command replicated 4 times:

lvcreate -L10G -n rawhide-root vg_caesium_domUs && lvcreate -L1G -n rawhide-swap vg_caesium_domUs && lvcreate -L10G -n rawhide-home vg_caesium_domUs && lvcreate -L512M -n rawhide-boot vg_caesium_domUs

The virt-install command is somewhat different too – It now specifies the 4 block drives:

virt-install -p -r 512 -n rawhide -f /dev/vg_caesium_domUs/rawhide-boot -f /dev/vg_caesium_domUs/rawhide-root -f /dev/vg_caesium_domUs/rawhide-home -f /dev/vg_caesium_domUs/rawhide-swap -l -x ks="http://hydrogen/~kyl191/ks/ks.php?hostname=rawhide"
