I was wondering if there's a way to force a certain partitioning
schema when using LVM.

Let me explain: I would like to create two LVM volumes in the dom0,
format one as ext3 and the other one as a swap partition. Then I'd
like to install CentOS using the first one as the root partition and
the second one as the swap partition. The problem is the installer
wants to repartition both volumes. It says: "/dev/hda1 currently has a
loop partition layout"
Is there a way to create and format those volumes in a way that will
be usable by the installer.

If not, how can I mount and expand/shrink such volumes in the dom0?

Thanks a lot for your help! :)
