First, get a clean lvm-0.6 gziped tar, from
and unpack it to the directory of your choosing, 

tar -xzf lvm_0.6.tar.gz

(you should already know this part), which will create a LVM/0.6/..... directory

Second, if you put Heinz's latest patch in the same directory as the
lvm_0.6.tar.gz file, do the following

gzip -dc lvm_0_6-patch-15031999a | (cd LVM/0.6; patch -p1)

This should successfully patch two files


If you get bad results, I must have mistyped something, so let me know and I'll
correct it.
