I am trying to use Linq to Sharepoint for some custom reports but I am running into an issue trying to setup SPMetal.

I generated the class but for one of my lists "ListA" only ID and Title fields are being generated. It as a custom content type "ContentZ" which is a list content type and not a site content type.

Does anyone know how to get SPMetal to register my custom content type and then generate the ListA class properly?

Did you ever come up with a solution? I have the same problem and think its not possible by design. So I have to create a content type and site columns and use the XML settings to tell SPMetal what content type to include. –  Predator Nov 6 '12 at 2:48
