Problem with LVM on fresh Sarge installation


I've installed Sarge (Linux 2.6.8-1-386) from DVDs with this drives' configuration:

 hda1  /boot
 hda2 swap
 hda3 /


 VG: name SYSTEM (with one PV from SATA)
 LV: HOME (ext3)
 LV: ...

I can start Sarge Debian without lvm, login as root and after that start LVM:

login: root
Add to /etc/fstab:
# vi /etc/fstab

/dev/mapper/SYSTEM-HOME /opt            ext3    defaults        0       2

# vgdisplay
  No volume groups found

# mount /opt/
mount: special device /dev/mapper/SYSTEM-HOME does not exist

# /etc/init.d/lvm start
Setting up LVM Volume Groups...
  Reading all physical volumes.  This may take a while...
  Found volume group "SYSTEM" using metadata type lvm2
  4 logical volume(s) in volume group "SYSTEM" now active

# vgdisplay
  --- Volume group ---
  VG Name               SYSTEM
  System ID
  Format                lvm2
  Metadata Areas        1
  Metadata Sequence No  9
  VG Access             read/write
  VG Status             resizable
  MAX LV                0
  Cur LV                4
  Open LV               1
  Max PV                0
  Cur PV                1
  Act PV                1
  VG Size               37.25 GB
  PE Size               4.00 MB
  Total PE              9536
  Alloc PE / Size       9536 / 37.25 GB
  Free  PE / Size       0 / 0
  VG UUID               dKWH4d-fe1l-S5cf-x76v-lIhr-lTHy-CvRrW5

# mount /opt/

# ls /opt/

# reboot

But it doesn't work with added certain line in /etc/fstab. Debian fails during startup and init ext3 filesystem on the lvm.

>From screen:

Fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
/boot: clean
fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/mapper/SYSTEM-HOME

The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem.  If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
    e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

(write root password or Ctrl+D for exit):   

...now my USB keyboard doesn't work, so i cannot do anything:

Any idea how can I repair it? 

Thank you very much.
