Dear team,

We have a number of servers with /usr and /var on LVM.  The difficulty
arises when upgrading from one version of Red Hat to another; the
installation disks do not recognise the logical volumes.

Do any of you have any reasonable approach to solving this?  Do I need
to create a new network installation boot disk with a small kernel with
support for LVM and scripts to turn on LVM groups?
