	That answer is quite off-putting, and makes me seriously
consider whether or not I want to use LVM on my RH systems.

	Frankly, the release versions of the 2.4 kernels have been so
unstable, that I would not use any version _but_ the RH patched

	I'm not suggesting that Sistina, or even you personally, should
support every patched kernel under the sun.  But, I don't think you
should imply that he's doing something terribly wrong and the RH kernels
are somehow bad either.

	BTW, does anybody know which version of LVM made it into the RH
2.4.18-0.13 kernel?

Have fun (if at all possible),
