Man gzip and cpio in case I misremember.
In a work directory:
gzip -dc <initrd name> | cpio -idmc
Down in the resulting directory, there is an init file.
Locate the ignorelockingfailure and change the VG name there.
Still in the top level working directory (<the created initrd dir/..>)
find <initdirname> | cpio -oac | gzip --best ><new initrd name>
Move it to the boot dir, change grub.conf appropriately. More perilous,
but possible: make it the same name (pls save the original somewhere)
and no grub name change needed.
