Jarod has some good notes here on it:

Can you add a second drive?  I really like having a small (40GB) drive for
my main stuff (/boot, /, swap), and separate drives for my storage.  I
currently have two 320GB SATA (for really inexpensive at NewEgg), in a LVM
so that I can grow/shrink the storage as necessary.
