Got lvm running on at RH 6.1 after patching a 2.2.10 kernal.  All looking
very good. However, when I ran lvcreate_initrd, it errored out;

[root at l61 tools]# ./lvmcreate_initrd

lvmcreate_initrd -- this script creates a LVM initial ram disk in

lvmcreate_initrd -- making ram filesystem
lvmcreate_initrd -- ERROR making ram disk filesystem

Also, any suggestions as to where to put the "vgscan" and "vgchange -a y"
on this system.  It uses the "Sys V" rc.d setup (no /sbin/init.d/boot
