There never seemed to be a Disk Druid text support for LVM. If you do 
not like the defaults (and I rarely do), you either have to be good with 
kickstart (I am not) or use the Gui to set up the partitions as you want.

For some test systems, when all I want to do is throw up a FC/Centos 
system, I will just accept the defaults and then I have gotten by with 
the text installer.
