Strange, I wonder why they're inactive... since you just created them,
they should be active.  You did just create them, right?  Or did they
exist before?  In any case, can you type:
  vgchange -a y
and restart the partitioner; then they should show up.

The devices should show up in the main partitioning menu together with
the hard drive and you'll be able to format them there.
