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

Thanks for all the good feedback Eneko.
This server will be decommissioned in few months and replaced by proper
servers with RAID. Until then I have to cope with this and hope nothing
happens. I do keep backups of VMs on nightly basis though.
Just to make sure, I don't have fakeraid setup or something else that might
bite me later on, how can I go about creating a separate storage rather
than extending the current one? I check this page and it seems it's not the
right one for me as it says there is only RAW support with that method:
Please guide me to proper/permanent way to make this 2nd HDD available to
system as a separate storage module.
