It depends on what distro you're looking at.  FC and Ubuntu support it
(and have for a while now), but I don't know about Suse.  I'm guessing
it does.  However, I've been bitten by using LVM on my "/" partition
when moving an Ubuntu system over to Xen/Ubuntu.  The stock Xen kernels
don't have support for LVM.  The good news is that FC's Xen kernels do
have LVM built-in and make it a breeze to work with.
