RE: Raid and LVM at boot on RHEL4

Exact!!! We've installed RedHat Linux with logical volumes and we had to
install / on a ext3 partition, not in a logical volume.

I think your problem is the type of partition.

For grub is requesite /boot partition will be ext3, NOT LVM. Make sure
you put /dev/md0 as ext3.
