[linux-lvm] vgscan and initrd

I tried to do that just now. 
Sadly, it didn't work. Still vgscan doesn't see any volume group at all. So once again, kernel panic strikes.

This is so frustrating :) I mean, the livecd things boot just fine, but it absolutly refuses to boot to that lvm.

Any more suggestions ?
