Hello list,

As i want lvm on drbd and drbd for the whole disk, exclusive /boot, i needed
to find a way to keep two nearly identical /etc-directories.

This lead to the idea to put the /etc-directory on cd-rw or USB-stick and
let root be handled completely via drbd/lvm.

Because the /etc-files are only read seldom, mostly only on startup, i don't
think, this is a real performance-impact, isn't it?

What do you think about that?

Kind regards, Florian
