Wow that sounds complex, why not just make the ramdisks larger? Just use
the boot parameter which sets that:
vgcreate my36Mdisk /dev/ram15 /dev/ram14 /dev/ram13
vgcreate my12Mdisk /dev/ram/12
lvcreate -n myRamDisk1 -L 36M my36Mdisk
lvcreate -n myRamDisk2 -L 12M my12Mdisk
where N is the size in kilobytes, so for 256M you specify 262144.
Thanks for that advice.
I ended up making the ramdisks smaller which gave me greater
granularity. Then when the volume groups were created I specified 64K
extents instead of the default 16M. That gave two benefits: there was
almost no wasted space in the VG, and the data that I copied over used
less than half of the space of the original.
