Why am I getting an error on the partition when I use 0x8e as type?

Yes, I did not have any error when I used 0xfd as partition type.

To make SW-RAID over LVM, Should I create the partition using 0x8e(LVM) type?

Thanks for your kind answer

you shouldn't change the softRAID partition id to lvm
you had to create the lvm over the RAID

that is OK
but /dev/hda[1-3] and /dev/hdb[1-3] should be SW-RAID ( partition id)

and then
pvcreate /dev/md0 /dev/md1 /dev/md2
vgcreate
.........

good luck
