could you give us some more details about your setup, including actual
lines from your configuration.

  I  have  also tried (unsuccessfully) to use an initrd image I found on
  the 'net at [1]http://www.comedia.it/~bluca/cooker/lvm2/

There is no initrd image at that location. What you find there is modified Mandrake rpm to support lvm2 in Mandrake Linux 9.2/cooker, and has not been tested with anything different than that.

  to  see  what  I  could find out. When trying to use the Busybox "ash"
  command  inside  the  modified evms initrd image, however, the machine
  doesn't halt and give me a shell at all but keeps booting.
i saw this problem as well, i don't know if it is caused by some device
file missing in the initrd image or what.
