Best would actually be boot itself, but only if the fsck part would be
devided into

- fsck the root fs
- remount / rw
- run vgscan and vgchange -ay
- fsck the rest (in serial - fsck at this time is too dumb to find out
  which physical disks a LV resides on, and will run all of them in
  parallel :-( )

or wait for SuSE 6.3 :-) 

I've not tried this yet - no time - but seems pretty straightforward. 

A witty saying proves nothing, but saying something pointless gets
people's attention.
