As a new user, the thing I missed from the installation instructions/manual was how to turn off LVM when installing Fedora.

There are clear notices in the installation guide that LVM is not recommended, yet nothing to say how to do it, except a partioning guide flagged for 'advanced' users, which seems to have a rather excessive number of partitions included.

Although the default LVM installation works with Amahi, I found it very confusing (when trying to view my filesystem within Fedora) and re-installed Fedora with just swap and a single root partition, which seems to be working fine.

Great news!

I would suggest two things in the installation part:
1/ screenshots without LVM, and with the same structure as with LVM (swap, /, /home partitions) as it is confusing not to see the same structure. Maybe it is on purpose, then explain why.

2/ screenshots with different options: 1 HDD, 2 or 3. Or explain a little more what are each partition doing, which ones coould be added later and when... I think this is relevant because considering the price of HDDs now, many new comers like me will have systems with several hard drives.

Thanks for the work!
