Re: [linux-lvm] Rescue cd for lvm 1.0.3 (fwd)



Because lilo doesn't have a clue about lvm, so it cannot properly store the 
location of your kernel in your boot record if /boot is also in lvm (like in 
your setup). That is why the lvm howto tells you you must have /boot on a 
separate (dos) partition (eg hda1).
