[PVE-User] How is the default Proxmox partition layout? I am confused by a 16MB partition now.

I have chosen to not extend the LVM but rather create another one. So far,
I deleted the partitions on /dev/sdb/ and created two new partitions. I
also did pvcreate and vgcreate. I can see the second HDD now on Proxmox GUI
under Storage > Volume Group. But I am afraid to install it there as I have
not run "lvcreate" yet.

Also, I am not sure what to chose for ID, Base Storage, Volume Group,
Nodes, Enabled, Shared....when I add storage.

Can you please shed some light on above or refer to proper wiki page?
