Actually, RH now supports LVM as of 8.0. An lsmod when in 'rescue mode' also shows lvm_mod.
The whole disaster with software RAID and LVM mixed in, isn't easy, but a friend and I figured it out yesterday. Not knowing the system has a mix of both before troubleshooting could be (actually is) disastrous!
