Ben,

you mention in our other e-mail, that you had an LV spanning all 3 disks
containig a reiserfs.
If your PV is lost *and* you don't have an actual backup, you'll loose fs
data anyway :-(

If you still want to get the LV *partially* back, you need a replacement
disk/partition of the same size the gone PV had, vgcfgrestore(8) the LVM
metadata to it and run "vgscan;vgchange -ay".
