It might be the order in which you have specified things. The on-line documentation* specifies the syntax as:

logvol <mntpoint> --vgname=<name> --size=<size> --name=<name> <options>

and "fstype", "grow" and "percent" are all options.  Try re-ordering things:

part /boot --fstype "ext3" --size=250 --asprimary
part pv.01   --size=1 --grow --ondisk=sda
volgroup vglocal00 pv.01
logvol swap --vgname=vglocal00 --size=2048 --name=swap00 --fstype swap
logvol /tmp --vgname=vglocal00 --size=2048 --name=tmp00
logvol /var/log --vgname=vglocal00 --size=1 --name=log00 --grow --percent=10 --fstype ext4 logvol / --vgname=vglocal00 --size=1 --name=root00 --grow --percent=90 --fstype ext4
