10 Our last CD had the lvm tools included on the boot filesystem, as well as LVM
11 support compiled-in. Pretty sure about this. But the boot process didn't auto-detect
12 logical volumes.
14 To answer your question: We want LVM totally integrated into Gentoo Linux, so we'll
15 add whatever support you'd like.
17 How's that? :)
