Default The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 10.10 [ISPConfig 3]- Drive Space

During the installation, there is a part that states the following:

Quote:
If you have selected Guided - use entire disk and set up LVM, the partitioner will create one big volume group that uses all the disk space. You can now specify how much of that disk space should be used by the logical volumes for / and swap. It makes sense to leave some space unused so that you can later on expand your existing logical volumes or create new ones - this gives you more flexibility.
I entered 20% here.

Can I add more of my drive space as needed? Is that what is meant by "later on expand your existing logical volumes?"

This is a pure server installation (no desktop or browser options).

Default installation ubuntu 10.10

I have three drives connected in the server. Each drive is one TB.

sda partition #1 of SCSI3 (0,1,0) as ext2
sdb partition #7 of SCSI4 (0,1,0) as /swap
sdc partition #5 of SCSI4 (0,1,0) as /swap

I don't know why the default made the two TB drives /swap. I want only 32G of /swap on the first drive.

I'm trying to format those two /swap drives to clear old data from them also.

1. I want to make them ext drives, so I can use the space for webpages.

2. When the system first boots, there is a list of installations. I can see the old installations listed. How do I clear those? Do I just go to a file somewhere inside the system and delete them? I don't want anything that is dual boot, I want to use the Ubuntu 10.10 installation only, and I don't want the others to be an option. That tutor for the installation was PERFECT.

I appreciate all the help.

I cleaned it all up with fdisk. Didn't know how to do that before.
