The easiest way would be to set up the VG and LVs during the install
process. Otherwise, you can do:

mkfs.reiserfs /dev/<VG name>/<LV name 1>
mount /dev/<VG name>/<LV name 1> /mnt
cp -rp /usr/* /mnt/
umount /mnt
# edit fstab so that /dev/<VG name>/<LV name 1> is mounted on /usr

# repeat for /var and <LV name 2>

in order to delete the old contents of /usr & /var, you will probably
need to use a rescue disk, mount your / partition and delete the old
contents of /usr & /var
