Ah, okay. I don't know why you didn't have the equivalent of "finish
partitioning and continue". If you specifically selected configure LVM, and
didn't have the prerequisite LVM stuff done, then it will most probably barf
at you as it has. The crux of the problem is why didn't you have a "finish
partitioning and continue" type menu option...

Thanks for helping clear this up...
