I'll second this.  I've had all my data on LVM2 for months w/out
problems; I've started moving production machines over to lvm2 w/out
mishap (other than redhat's broken init system, but that's not lvm's
fault :).  I only use basic (linear) volume management; no snapshotting,
striping, etc.

Also note that I'm still using beta2 (w/ 2.4.18-ac3).
