Ah well, you're welcome.  Sorry it's not the information you were
after.  I don't know of any boot floppies (official or not) for any
distro that does that.  I honestly don't expect to see it for a
while, either.  I don't mean to be just pessimistic.  Someone on
this list (Hienz I think) said that boot-time recognition of
logical volumes is a feature to be added _after_ 1.0.  Doesn't seem
quite worth the effort to work out all the logistics of initrds and
whatnot in the boot disks, if we can hold off for that functionality
just a bit.  In the meantime the few of us who want to explore, are
already having success with the current scheme of things. Just
doesn't seem that there is as much pressure to create that
functionality as there would be if new boot floppies were
absolutely necessary.


Gonna wait it out :)
