Clover isn't necessary at all. I just finished setting up a Fusion drive that boots with Chimera. The steps are essentially the same as the RAID-0 guide found here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/lion-desktop-guides/32724-lion-10-7-2-raid-0-tonymacx86-tools-chimera.html
except instead of creating a RAID partition, you substitute the steps in post 1 of this thread to create a CoreStorage logical volume group and partition. Chimera's boot0, boot1h, and boot files are manually installed into the hidden diskXs3 "Boot OS X" partition on both drives, along with /Extra. The UUID of the Fusion volume goes in the kernel flags in org.chameleon.Boot.plist.
I realized that this should solve my problem. The only thing is I can no longer boot in to the OS. That worked once. I reinstalled to see if that would lead me down the same path, and no luck. Just goes back to the install routine...
Grrr... I don't want to give up yet, but my wife needs her new machine. I am going to punt for now and go back and try again at another date.
