I use LVM and hence the filesystem layout is a bit cumbersome to describe.
But that is my problem :).

This is the final result

proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/mapper/vg00-root /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0
/dev/md0        /boot           ext3    defaults        0       2
/dev/mapper/vg00-scratch /scratch        xfs     defaults        0       2
/dev/mapper/vg00-usr /usr            ext3    defaults        0       2
/dev/mapper/vg00-var /var            ext3    defaults        0       2
/dev/mapper/vg00-var_mail /var/mail       xfs     defaults        0
/dev/mapper/vg00-swap none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/hda        /media/cdrom0   iso9660 ro,user,noauto  0       0

but before I got their I had to realize a glitch in DI.

When I first set up the raid1 for /boot inkluding specifying that the
mount point should be "/boot" and thereafter setup the raid1 which
underlies the DeviceMapper then DI forgets about the /boot mount point and
the filesystem is not created.

The result is an unbootable system, as neither LILO nor GRUB understands
LVM/DeviceMapper, which is the reason why /boot should be in a flat raid1.

Being aware of the glitch and respecifying the /boot-mountpoint before
committing the partitioning solves the problem.

Another problem which I cannot specify the details for here is, at when
one tries to do the same with "linux26" then the systems comes up with a
mismatch of devfs and non-devfs configuration values in md and lvm.
Changing the values in /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf to devfs references makes the
system work.
