AFAIK,in centos or fedora a boot partition cannot reside in an LVM
volume.a boot partition must be a regular ext2 or ext3 file system.
or are you trying to boot from from wrong partition ? /dev/hda2 is
labled as boot and is an ext3 filesystem. so i am inclined to believe
that is the partition where the vmlinuz and initrd file resides. you
need to change the line "root (hd0,2)" to "root (hd0,1)" during booting.
