[linux-lvm] lvm with gpt partitioning?

Hi all,

I hope this isn't a redundant question, I've tried looking through the mailing
lists with no luck:

I'm having a problem setting up physical volumes on an ia64 machine running a
2.4.18+lvm1.0.5 kernel.

the disk is labelled using an "EFI GPT" disk label/partitioning arrangement.  I
currently have two partitions defined, the first is 2gb and the second is 16gb.
I can do a pvcreate on the second, but not on the first.  I've attached output
from parted, fdisk, and pvcreate below...

any ideas?

[root one sbin]# fdisk -l /dev/sdb
