i'm finally back to extlinux...

installation was perfectly painless:

apt-get install extlinux
mkdir -p /boot/extlinux
extlinux --install /boot/extlinux
cat > /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf << END
DEFAULT debian
LABEL debian
    kernel /vmlinuz
    append root=/dev/mapper/volumegroup-root ro quiet
    initrd /initrd
dd bs=440 conv=notrunc count=1 if=/usr/lib/syslinux/mbr.bin of=/dev/sda
apt-get remove --purge grub-pc grub-common

checking that the boot flag is set to the correct partition with fdisk and reboot :)

the path to vmlinuz and initrd should probably made relative - something like: ../vmlinuz but /vmlinuz works in my case as i have a separate /boot partition.
