[linux-lvm] booting from an LV

I have one question.
Is it possible with grub to use a logical volume as boot partition?
(e.g.:partition: /dev/VG01/lvol0.
Entry in grub.conf would then be:
title Fedora Core (xxx..)
    root hd(0,5) # partition on which VG01 resides
    kernel /dev/VG01/lvol0/vmlinuz-xxx... ro root=/dev/VG01/lvol1
    initrd /dev/VG01/lvol0/initrd-xxx....img
I think I read somewhere that grub is not happy with this but I'm not sure,
