I've just set up an Ubuntu Server 10.04 for KVM virtualization. I must note that I am new to KVM as well. 

I am going to build a RAID10 and use it as a PV in an LVM VG. My original thought was to build and mount the LV myself and then use directories for the storage pool there. I noticed that KVM can use the LV directly in its configuration.What's the advantage of doing this?

TIA,
