module has been loaded (look at /proc/modules) and b) and if not load
it by hand (modprobe natsemi).  Does that help?

Strange, this should definitely work.  Okay, I see what might possibly

lvmcfg tests whether LVM is available by checking if /proc/lvm exists.
I guess this might not exist on 2.6.  How can I find out if LVM is

What failed here?  Did you not continue without LVM?
