You've more than 12 discs in your box? No? Oh, if you ment you're trying
to run LVM ontop of a 4disk RAID5 drive (using linux md drivers), than
try:

pvcreate /dev/md0

vgcreate ... /dev/md0

lvcreate ... 

I'm running LVM since v1.0.0 ontop of a 6 device RAID5 drive using 2.4.x
MD driver.

And what distribution are you using? But that should not matter.
