Depends what you mean boot - it's possible to have lvm2 /, depending on
the firmware you'll either need an Apple_Bootstrap partition or a PReP
boot for yaboot to reside on and an ext2 /boot for kernel/ramdisk as
yaboot doesn't know about lvm.

Yes, and you can have /boot on md0, Dustin Kirkland did a lot of work
getting software RAID /boot and / working with yaboot.

Do you have a particular problem you are trying to solve?
