Thank you.  This is an interesting way to store the broken system.  It will be like a junk yard that I can copy out of.  

Partitioning will be a challenge.  Currently, this is laptop runs LVM.  I have two groups.  The system is on one, the other I plan on using for VM storage.  I could break the one for VMs into groups for file systems.  I am not sure how to use this.  Once I have these different groups, if I want to rebuild, I will need to have the new system installed to one of the unused VGs.  I have a  quandary about this each time I rebuild, I have a challenge with the Debian installer on where to put the new system.  It seem like I rebuild the LVM each time which means I would wipe out the previous system.
