LVM and device-mapper instalation- Help


I found out lately about LVM, but I have trouble to installing on linux Mandrake 9.1. It is such a pain in bum. I download the LVM stable ver. wtih the device-mapper to /mnt/share/WinShare/LVM dir, this is example : file:/mnt/share/WinShare/LVM/LVM-2.0-stable.tgz/device-mapper.1.00.05/patches
you can fingure / so so where everything that I am talking about is store right?

Then I ran the command in device-mapper cause device-mapper must be install 1st on Linux if it wasn't before, so in the device-mapper dir i ran the command
./configure ----kernel-source-dir---=file:/usr/src/Linux-2.4.21-0.13mdk and it ran some processes/executions and stop. Then I kept reading the INSTALL file in device-mapper folder, was telling me to install patches i ran the patches with command something like

[root@localhost Linux-2.4.21-0.13mdk]# patch -p1 < /mnt/share/WinShare/LVM/LVM-2.0

but it didn't work. see below exactly what I had done.

[root@localhost patches]# man patch
[root@localhost patches]# pwd
[root@localhost patches]# ls -la

Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
