And here my configuration
 
[root localhost root]# cat  /boot/grub/grub.conf
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
#          root (hd0,0)
#          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda2
#          initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/sda
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (2.4.21-4.EL)
 root (hd0,0)
 kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.21-4.EL ro root=LABEL=/
 initrd /initrd-2.4.21-4.EL.img
title Ramsis
 root (hd0,0)
 kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.21-4.EL ro root=/dev/vg00/root
 initrd /initrd-lvm-2.4.21-4.EL.gz

 
And I mounted my new root ' mount /dev/vg00/root /mnt/ '
The new /etc/fstab contains : 
 
/dev/vg00/root          /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/sda3               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0                /mnt/floppy             auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0

But i still think the problrm is coming from the instruction "lvmcreate_initrd" because if I do not use the "-D" flag, the instruction fail, and in the "LVM-HOWTO", it is used without that flag.
If you have any suggestion :)
thank you :)
