You just have to go through adding the mount points you want. An example:
I would put in a boot partition (100MB) ext3 as a native partition personally.
/boot use a standard and not LVM folder (500MB) ext4
root: i.e. (/) 5GB (minimum), but do as you prefer, could do 50GB if you like--your decision
/homes, you could leave as a logical volume and set to the capacity that you need
swap (at least 256 MB), better is said to be (2 times the amount of RAM), so 8GB (16GB swap), 32GB (64GB swap), etc.
/someotherspecialmountpoint (whatever size you need)
biosboot 1MB
/var (and give it the capacity you desire)  I don't think they recommend splitting out var, you may have your reasons.
