If you need to boot from a logical partition you can use lilo.

I have one question.
Is it possible with grub to use a logical volume as boot partition?
(e.g.:partition: /dev/VG01/lvol0.

Francis,
Thanks. I've read that. But after 7 or 8 years using LILO with all the problems around it, I switched 2 years ago to grub and decided to stick to it. So my solution is to make a small (100 Mb) primary partition for grub and do the rest with LVM as I have discovered the ease and advantage of it after years of struggling with fdisk (DOS, W98, Linux) and with the ntfsprogs suite it's easy to create XP partitions in an LV for backups.
