Thanks Bryn for the added info.

I finally wound back around to finish the renaming of my local volume name.
It was successful after figuring out that the lvm commands are packaged as
the single "lvm" command on the Fedora Rescue CD.  I also discovered that
the initrd had to be expanded and modified and repacked.  There was a
reference there as well.

Thanks for your help.
