Your best starting point is the new LVM HOWTO at:
http://tech.sistina.com/lvm/doc/lvm_howto/index.html

Linux LVM is considered stable, since it passed version 1.0 (now
1.0.1-rc2). It has been stable for some time before. Current Linux kernels
include an outdated LVM version (2.4.9 still includes LVM 0.9.1-beta2,
dated back in January or so).

What LVM provides is a means or managing your disk space in Linux: so
there is no way to create a Linux LV to hold a Windows or Solaris
installation. AFAIK, W2K has some sort of volume management in some of
their versions, and I'm sure Solaris has something on its own.
