This is what we use.  Our 4 hard drives are in a raid 5 configuration, so only /dev/sda is seen.  Also it was decided to have /boot and / not under lvm.

#Partition clearing information
clearpart --all --initlabel 
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100
part / --fstype ext3 --size=8000

Subject: [linux-lvm] LVM and Kickstart

Is there any examples of using LVM on RedHat 3.x in a kickstart 
script? I am trying to creat one large LVM partion accross 3 drives to 
about 400G and I am not having any luck at it.

I have tired the following in the ks.cfg file:
# partition information
clearpart --all
 part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100 --ondisk=sda
 part swap --size=8192 --ondisk=sda
 part / --fstype ext3 --size=8192 --ondisk=sda
 part pv.15 --size=100 --grow --ondisk=sdc
 part pv.13 --size=100 --grow --ondisk=sdb
 part pv.11 --size=100 --grow --ondisk=sda
 volgroup Volume00 pv.11 pv.13 pv.15
 logvol /tmp --fstype ext3 --name=LogVol00 --vgname=Volume00 
 --pesize=16384 --size=354500
