LVM is very much alive and in use.

What you appear to have done is created your "volume groups", but not
created any actual logical volumes in them, nor formatted those logical
volumes to create filesystems.

What you'll want to do, now, is to run system-config-lvm, and run through
the process of creating actual logical volumes and setting them up as

It's actually very simple and painless.
