Be sure to back up your home directory. The movie posters are actually
stored in ~/.mythtv/MythVideo. If you check, there's a bunch of stuff stored
in there, so I'd recommend keeping your whole home directory. If you use
MythGame, all your zsnes settings and stuff will be in your home directory
as well.

As for LVM, I've had the same two 250 gig drives in an LVM setup through
about four full reinstalls of ubuntu (not 'apt-get dist-upgrade' but actual
reinstalls). I don't see why LVM in Fedora would be so drastically different
that it wouldn't work in Ubuntu.
