you just wiped your disk

PV /dev/hdb2 VG VolGroup01 lvm2 [2.93 GB / 2.93 GB free]
PV /dev/hda2 VG VolGroup02 lvm2 [3.91 GB / 32.00 MB free]
Total: 2 [6.83 GB] / in use: 2 [6.83 GB] / in no VG: 0 [0 ]
if you are certain that the previous logical volume spanned the whole
disk, you can:
# vgdisplay /dev/VolGroup01
and look at the "Total PE" value, then
# lvcreate -Z n -l TOTAL_PE -n LogVol01 /dev/VolGroup01

but i'd rater first try with http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk
which might be able to recover the damage you did.
