At first, I would not try to put /boot on LVM
Than you would need some additional space to create a PV, with this a VG
and than LVs for / and /var. Use ext2fs on this LV (or reiserfs) for
resizeability. Move /var and / to the LV, change fstab (the one on the /
LV), create a initrd (lvmmkinitrd), change lilo.conf, run lilo and try
to boot your new LVM system.
BTW: There are a lot of docs, faqs and howtos on the LVM homepage:
