LVM creates devices under /dev.  You first create a Physical Group on
an existing /dev/ide/.. device (or sda, md, etc).  Then you create a
Volume Group, based on one of more Physical Groups.  This Volume Group
foo is created as /dev/foo.  Then you create Logical Groups (the
actualy partitions you then format as ext3, etc), and they are created
as /dev/foo/bar.

There's nothing we can do about this.
