Before I do something silly, can someone give me some advice on an lvm partition?

lvdisplay, ls /dev/mapper ....
usually anaconda places the OS in a LVM and swap in another one , but 
since you claim that your root dir is on sda1, I do not know. Anyway, I 
doubt that all the OS is inside a 200 MB partition, more likely /boot is 
there while the rest of the OS is inside the LVM
