I just installed a "new" system using LVM. I didn't instlall LVM on
the entire disk though, leaving /boot and / outside.
I think that is the saner approach anyway :-)
Most LiveCD distros (at least thos of which I am aware, like Knoppix)
have no support for LVM. Additionally, I know that other tools like
Tom's RootBoot certainly don't have the room. Thus, if you go all the

be able to get to them with a commonly used rescue tool.
Now, if it comes to recovering something like an entire filesystem on a
LV, or something like that, then you may be out of luck. But at least
you will be able to access the basic parts of your system in the case of
