I don't recall LVM ever being on Warp 4 either. I used it on the last version
on Warp Server that I had before moving to RH 6.2 (I had to hack the
installation disks for Warp Server with files from Warp 4 to get it to
install after IBM insisted that not installing wasn't a bug and that I had to
purchase a service contract if I wanted them to tell me how to install it).
