Don't remember about Debian, but as far as I remember, at least Potato
(kernel 2.2.1x) doesn't have kernel support for LVM at installation time.

On the other hand, it seems that Mandrake has full support for Linux LVM
at installation time, at least from and including 8.0 (maybe also 7.2).
On versions with such support, the screen where you can make traditional
partitions lets you configure whatever LVM setup you want, except LV for
the root filesystem. Additionally, MDK gives give the possibility of
setting up soft RAID and whatever filesystem supported under Linux you
could think of :).
