ahh, symlinks, i see... yes... I'd read about devfs back when there was 
argument about wether it should be in the kernel or not, but gentoo finally 
dragged me into the modern age. I presume it's the symlinks that vgcreate 
doesn't like... could that be construed as a bug?

Right, onwards for fun and games with grub and lvmcreate_initrd :)

Thanks for the help,
