Get the LVM2 tools from www.sistina.com and compile/install them
in a different directory (see configure options) if you want to co-install
them with the LVM1 tools.

Boot 2.6 and use the LVM2 tools in the directory you selected
when you configured them.

See LVM2's vgconvert manual.
LVM2 is able to handle LVM1 formated voplume groups in case you want
to be able to swictch back to 2.4+LVM1. Of course you can get device-mapper
patches for 2.4 from our site and use device-mapper+LVM2 on 2.4 as well.

At least one additional step is necessary (get the LVM2 tools running on 2.6).
