I am running FC5 with the operating system on a 40g disk and three additional storage sata disk of 300g, 300g and 500g. My only prblem is that when i boot it says it can't find the volume group Movie and uuid physical volume uuid xxxxxxxxxxxxx. However it then keeps going and mounts all disk. all three are filesystem ext3. It's working ok once booted, I'm just wondering if something is going to cause me problems later.

How do I fix this?

Hello:
Just a guess ....... that you perhaps changed something with your actual physical drives / etc/fstab etc. Which is different than when the last initrd was written with a kernel install?
The next time you update / install a new kernel, the error will not be present afterwards.

Yes, I have added a drive and tried LVM manually and with the gui to set it up.
