You need the LILO patch for LVM.  I have attached it below.  I will NOT
be submitting it to the LILO maintainer until the stock Linus kernel has
something more than the 0.9.1-beta2 LVM kernel code (because it crashes
your kernel instantly), OR the LVM developers say it is OK for me to
submit a kernel patch to Linus to fix this problem (which I'm sure would
be accepted right away because of the terrible secutiry problem it is)...
I have repeatedly said that I would fix this, and have been repeatedly
told "we are working on getting patches to Linus, don't do this".  Oh well.

Cheers, Andreas
