No, no...
The case is not like this. There is no such overlapping here.

I created my volume group during RH8 installation.
After that I manually created /dev/sdb4 and within /dev/sbd5 with fdisk.
And when I change the type of /dev/sbd5 to 8e in order to be able
to run pvcreate ot it and to add it to my volume groups - the
systems hangs during kernel loading. In fact, the system stops to 
recognise my volume group. That's why it hangs.
