Thats not what I intend other than as a short term solution until I can 
get it trained.

And does logrotate currently handle that, or do I need to run that down 
and add it?

Totally OT here, I just discovered I didn't setup a /dos partition, 
formatted vfat.  Unforch, I doubt if LVM2 can handle that, but I'd like 
to confirm I made a booboo there.  Did I?

This also doesn't address the strange email I mentioned.
