vgscan reports open cdrom0 failed, a couple lines "Incorrect metadata area header checksum, and "Found volume group "vg1" using metadata type lvm2.  Vg1 is the only volume group I created.

lvscan reports the same first three lines as vgscan and concludes by correctly listing all lvs, but as inactive.  Here's the first listed:
inactive '/dev/vg1/usrlv' [1.0 GB] next free (default). 
I see:
IDE1 master (hda) - 17.2 GB ST317240A
  #1 primary 29.9 MB <bootable symbol><symbol> ext2 /boot
  #2 primary 200.2 MB                            <symbol> ext3  /
  #4 primary 16.9 GB                              <symbol> lvm
  #3 primary 95.9 MB                              <symobl> swap swap
IDE1 slave (hdb) - 5.2 GB Maxtor 85250D6
  #2 primary  5.1 GB                               <symbol> lvm
  #2 primary 96.2 MB                              <symbol> swap swap

Isn't this the screen where I should see:
>    LVM VG vg1, LV usrlv
>        #1 ...
And if so, isn't this where I should be able to select the line and add a filesystem and mount point to usrlv?  Or should that take place in the Configure the Logical Volume Manager screen?  The only options I get for "Logical volumes configuration action:
  Create logical volumes
  Delete logical volumes
It would make sense to also "Create filesystems on logical volumes".

Delete of an lv apparently entered in error returned "Error while deleting the logical volume.... Please check the error log....  Alt-F3 showed 4 lines of Incorrect metadata area header checksum, Volume group vg1 metadata is inconsistem, Volume group for uuid not found: <about 50 characters>, Unable to deactive logical volume "vg1".

Sorry about the verbosity.  I hope I've given the right information and not too much extra.
