to various points in the thread
upgrading by hand might be a choice
	rpm -Fvh /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/*.rpm
	note the missing dependencies
	rpm -Uvh /all/the/dependencies/you/found.rpm
	rpm -Fvh /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/*.rpm

i was able to upgrade from rh6.1 to 6.2 once upon a time by fiddling with up2date

mandrake has good lvm support, albeit they stubbornly refused to add lvm-root support
to 8.2

redhat has lvm support in rawhide, it also has lvm-root support with mkinitrd, dunno
about the installer

mandrake cd1 is a nice rescue disk it has support for about every filesystem on earth
(even if i would have liked ntfs r/w support).
It does not support raid or LVM, on 8.1 it also had the tendencxy to mount one of the mirrors
of your root partition, instead of the whole mirror
i found easier to recover from problems with raid/lvm by booting the mandrake cd in install
mode and switching to a shell as soon as possible.
