Yes, but to put / on LVM you need to use initrd. You also probably want
to force the minor number of <VG>/root to something fixed, since the
kernel isn't mounting by name at that point.
I built an initrd with busybox, LVM, megaraid and bash. Great for
(Recent LILO has a bug with device-mapper. Either downgrade or upgrade
to the latest, or follow the debian bugtracking on it)
