I've specified it as:

But, apparantly the installer doesn't see it?

If you are using a cd based install I think you will have to do HVM for the installer to work right.
Not necessarily. Some distros (e.g : RHEL5) support installers for PV.

So you might need a line more like

In RHEL 5 at least, anaconda requires the block device/file to be mapped as disk (e.g hda, sda) not partition (e.g. sda1). Try changing it to
disk = [ "phy:lvm-raid/FileVolGroup,sda,w" ]

Having said that, if you're building lots of identical domUs, using prebuilt template (and mappingthe block device as sda1 instead of sda) should be faster than installer.
