Interesting you should ask.  :-)

I am/was (for the past hour or two) just hunting this possibility
down.  I have the system currently booting from a tftp server (via an
etherboot diskette) so that I can shorten the cycle of "modify initrd
with more debugging and re-test".  I am just about to put some
debugging into the native hard disk booting initrd to see what disk
nodes are there and such.

The kernel is being booted with "devfs=mount", so they should be
there.  I should know in a few more minutes what is going on.

vgscan fails to find the VG.  I am sure this is going to turn out to
be missing device nodes, but will have figure out why that is if devfs
is being mounted.

Will keep ya posted.
