[linux-lvm] LV not activating during startup in SLES 9?

I recently had a minor kernel patch problem that was preventing LVM from
loading correctly on one of my boxes.  It's mostly solved, except that
my LV  is not automatically activating during start up.  Manually
issuing "vgchange -a y" fixes this, and I can mount it no problem. 

 I know I could just add this to a run level script to make sure it
happens during boot, but I want to have the activation happening in the
"appropriate" place.  However, I've been unable to find any
documentation that specifically explains where volume activation occurs
for LVM during startup on SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9.  Any tips on
where to look to correct this?
