On the first drive, existing partion need to be cleared and new 
partition and volgroup need to be created.

Only on the second drive existing LVM volume need to be reused.

This look very similar to what I tried, except that I use 2 
drives and on the other drive need to be reinitialized. Can this 
be done in kickstart?
