LVM only installs used to work, with lilo as the bootloader, but since ~kernel 
2.6.17+udev, it does not anymore.
Read the full history here :

I had the surprise one day, with my workstation, it could not boot after a 
kernel upgrade (I was following etch/testing).
I had to repartition an create a separate /boot.
I do that systematically since, 100Mo as the first partition. So that I can 
use grub again, which is less dangerous.
