rhel5 live cd lvm support

i have created lvm snapshot, its dd file and .tar.gz files are on lvm volumes.
snapshot is of / directory, is residing in lvm volume. the root directory is also lvm volume.

so i was trying to restore from snapshot of / using live cd of rhel5 BOOT.iso. which i found it in /rhel5_dvd/images/.

the tutorial i was following said that the live cd should support lvm. so when i m trying to restore after few steps when it asks for media which contains rescue image, i was unable to see the lvm volumes created earlier, instead it shows the partitions added to physical volume earlier i.e #pvcreate only.

so i wanted to know whether the live cd of rhel5 supports lvm or i m making some mistake in restore?
