This is news to my laptop, which is happily booting from /-on-LVM with
grub2.  That's one of the advantages of grub2.

As far as I'm aware, the alternate installer doesn't yet understand that
grub2 can happily handle /boot residing on an LVM volume and installs
LILO instead, but grub2 is quite happy to boot from LVM.
