[linux-lvm] booting on a new root partition



Hello every body.
 
think you Dieter Stüken for you response.
I'm still working on a virtual machine with Red Hat Entreprise 3. So don't worry if I break it
I'm working with 2 hard disks of 8GB. The first is partitioned like this
sda1 boot (101 MB)
sda2 /      (7400MB)
sda3 swap (573 MB)
  
I followed exactly the steps in the LVM-HOWTO excepted that I added the second Hard disk sdb.
I made an lvm partion sdb1 and I put all the root data (size 6GB) on it. The new partition is /dev/vg00/root

Then, I had a problem : when I type "lvmcreate_initrd", the RAM disk can't be created because of the lack of space ( I'm not sure of that).
 
I used "lvmcreate_initrd  -D", the instruction returns 0 ( it means ok). But when I reboot, there is kernel panic.
so if I use initrd, i don't know if i need that!!!!!!!
 
Think you for helping me
