Lilo has been completely unable to figure out where my root and boot
partitions are. No matter how I was setting up lilo.conf, it wouldn't find
the lvm root partition. I would get L 80 80 80... or L 40 40 40. Sadly, I
never kept a log of exactly what I did (it would have been helpful). I
have a feeling it was more a problem with setting up the raid and getting
lilo to understand where everything is as opposed to an issue with lvm.

Once I figure it all out I'll try and write one...
