I didn't write that but I did, following the howto
from http://tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO.
I couldn't solve the problem so I started a wipe of
/dev/md2 to be sure the disk was clear. (this took
quite some time on this slow machine)
I had to wait for that to finish so I could reboot to
single user (init=/bin/sh) again.
Then things worked!
Pfew...... ;-)
