initramfs-tools in etch has support for lvm built in. It should "just work"
you don't have to do anything at all.  You have to use the
/dev/mapper/volgrp--logicalvolume path to the volume though. (as opposed to
the /dev/volgrp/logicalvolume version) Then the initramfs script
automatically kicks in and initializes lvm before mounting root.
