system-config-kickstart does appear to lack suport for LVM, but it does 
pretty much everything else.

The LVM directives are pretty straightforward, and there's a clear 
example in the documentation:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/Kickstart#logvol

You can use system-config-kickstart to set everything up the way you 
want it (including the partitions themselves), and then modify the 
ks.cfg it generates to add the LVM configuration that you need.

You can also set up one system the way you want it, and look at 
/root/anaconda-ks.cfg afterward.  It'll have information you can use to 
set up an identical system, including the LVM directives.  They'll be 
commented out, but they'll be usable if you remove the hash in the first 
line character.
