well redhat provided lvm and mkinitrd tool do support it
i suppose you are running from a root on a partitioned disc
and you copied everything to your lvm root which is at
the moment mounted under /mnt/lvm
and that you have fixed the /etc/fstab under the new lvm root
to reflect the new setup: ie you have sth like
/dev/vg00/lvol3 / ext3 defaults 0 1
mkinitrd -v --fstab=/mnt/lvm/etc/fstab /boot/initrd_lvm `uname -r`
and use the newly created initrd to boot your system.
