Good idea.  :-)

[ disclaimer: I have not gone through an "installation" of 9.2 yet --

It sure does!  Diskdrake has supported creating PVs, VGs and LVs for
quite a few releases now but not creating / as an LV.  As of the last
release or two, I submitted enhancements to the installer to allow
installation onto a root LV.

Did you choose "Expert" installation, or choose the "Advanced" mode when
you got into Diskdrake?  You likely need to do that to see the LVM

Hmmm.  I have not tried exactly what you are trying to do, but knowing
what I do about Diskdrake, I can't see why what you are doing
won't/wouldn't work.

You sure do put up enough hoops one has to jump through to help you out
don't you?  If you want help with something the least you could do is
make it easy and straightforward to provide it.
