Default Fresh Centos 5.6 install...How-to for Xen PV?

I'm not sure about how what to do when partitioning the drive during setup. This physical server will serve as a Solusvm slave, Xen PV which in the Solusvm docs say...

Installing a SolusVM Master:
"SolusVM requires the following specification:
CentOS 5+ based linux operating system
At least one external IP address
OpenVZ - Ensure you have the correct partition requirements
Xen - Ensure you have the correct partition requirements"

And on the Xen requirements page:
"/ 80GB + (NOTE: XEN HVM iso's will be stored here)
LVM rest of drive (this must be an '''EMPTY''' logical volume group (VG))
SWAP (4GB max)"

I have no clue how to make that LVM happen as described.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you!

I think you need a / partition with 80GB (can be on LVM, but doesn't need to), and then you need an extra volume group with no logical volumes in it. This guide shold give you the idea: http://www.howtoforge.com/linux_lvm

I think I'll just start with a new install, CentOS 5.6 x86_64.

Any recommendations on partitioning during install?
