When I set up FC6 as a domU, here's how I did it.  It's pretty
different from what you've got, but it might shed light on your
situation in some way.

Create LV on Dom0.  Call it /dev/vg/domU.  Use pvcreate to use that lv
as a pv (sounds wierd, but it works).  create a new vg with the domU
pv as the only pv.  Call it domUvg.  Create another lv in Dom0 and
call it DomUboot.  Create all the Lvs you might want on DomUvg.  So,
on Dom0 you'll have something like this:


Then in your xm config file, you create two disks like this:  
disk = [ 'phy:vg/DomUboot,hda,w', 

In Anaconda you tell it where to mount each volume.  You have to
specify that you want to format each one as ext3, swap, whatever.  hda
must be /boot (because LV can't be /boot).
