I have installed a FC3T1 machine with the root device 
being /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-fc3t1 and then installed FC2 on there in a 
dual-boot configuration with a root of /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-fc2 .

The only problem I had was a lack of user-friendlyness of the LVM part of the 
interface.  I had to select the volume group and then select "edit" to add a 
new LV.  The most logical option of "new" didn't seem to work, neither did 
clicking on the "LVM" button.
