I wnated to install Debian with root on LVM. On partitioning step first 
time i did not found LVM configuration, I expected to see it after all partitions,
then I found it on top of the menu. Then I created 1 partition (PV) and VG on it.
Creating LV on this VG with default size (all free space) failed. Relevant
output of vgdisplay follows:

VG Size: 57.27 GB
PE Size: 4.00 MB
Free PE / Size: 14660 / 57.27 GB

There free space = 14660 * 4.00 MB = 58640 MB = 57.265625 GB < 57.27

Then I installed base system. This step failed on kernel installation.
Output on 3rd console:

.../initrd: device /dev/mapper/vg00/root not a block device

LVM was not installed in /target

Then I reformated discs and reinstalled base system. Before kernel installation
i did the following:

apt-install lvm2
chroot /target
mount /proc /proc -tproc

Then installed kernel.

Installation of LILO failed too. I manualy edited lilo-installer.postinst
and set

disc_offered_devfs to /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc
disc_offered to /dev/hda

Then I rerun lilo-installer and choosen /dev/hda from list.

After system boot failed with the following messages on console:

 No volume groups found
/scripts/ext3-add-journal.sh: 32: arith: syntax error: "0x"
/sbin/init: 417: arith: syntax error: "0x"

Then kernel panic...
