Don't put an initrd on it.  Create the first few partitions on 
your drive at 128MB (/), 64 or 128MB (primary swap), 320MB (/var).
Leave the rest on LVM.  With these three you can normally start
up and recover a damaged LVM system; if the root and primary swap
at least aren't in non-LVM storage you'll be unable to boot if 
LVM fries for any reason; /var is usually a pain to loose and 
doesn't grow all that much so I leave it on a partition also.
