I'm not *sure* about this, but I believe that /proc/lvm was only used
for LVM 1.0, while device-mapper doesn't have such a thing. RHEL3 is
based on a 2.6 kernel, right?

How about the userspace tools instead? Try pvdisplay, vgdisplay or
lvdisplay, depending on what info you want. Or is there some other info
that you're hunting for?
