Cobbler doesn't yet support installing into LVM partitions. Since
koan 0.2.7 has just been moved over to use the "virtinst" library,
though, it probably can be made to do this as long as virtinst supports
that. (I believe it does).
I'll put this on the investigate/TODO list, unless someone else wants to
take a crack at it...
