SuSE 7.1's Yast installer allows you to configure the LVM (create VG,
add PV, add LV etc) as part of the installation process. It's a tex
curses interface. Quite nice -- a nice logical layout and a bit like
Disk Druid, but I never had much success in creating a LVM only
machine... but then I'm a LVM newbie and those "non-trivial changes
required for a root LVM" SuSE's installer mentions are not exactly
documented by them (as far as I can tell).
