If its LVM that might complicate things.

Urm... Just connect the disk to a working linux box. When you do that it
will become available as one of the nodes under /dev/ (something like
/dev/hdb1 /dev/sda1 etc. exactly what depends on the machine. running
dmesg after pluging it in might tell you what).

once you have identified what it is, just run

  > fsck /dev/XXXX

I get (the usb hard disk should be sdb..)

fsck /dev/sdb1
fsck 1.39 (29-May-2006)
e2fsck 1.39 (29-May-2006)
/boot: clean, 21/26104 files, 21659/104388 blocks
[root Casa ~]# fsck /dev/sdb2
fsck 1.39 (29-May-2006)
e2fsck 1.39 (29-May-2006)
Couldn't find ext2 superblock, trying backup blocks...
fsck.ext2: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/sdb2

The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem.  If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
   e2fsck -b 8193 <device>
