Did you create an initrd ramdisk image?  See lvmcreate_initrd(8) for
details.  You'll then need to add an initrd=/path/to/image to lilo.conf
and rerun lilo.  (Basically the initrd needs to load the lvm modules
into the kernel if you didn't make them static and run vgscan and
vgchange -a y to enable the logical  volumes) 

Did you compile ram disk and initrd support into the kernel?  I spent a
couple hours banging my head trying to figure out why my kernel wouldn't
run the initrd before I finally figured that one out...I'm a quick
learner :)
