FC10 - External USB drive and LVM

Hi folks.

I tried upgrading my FC7 desktop to FC10 which resulted in the PC not booting, 
crashing during GRUB.

I have now installed FC10 onto a new HDD and want to copy the contents from my 
old drive to my new one.

I thought that the easiest way would be to use my USB external caddy, but I 
have a problem.  The box sees the drive, and mounts /boot no problem.

However, I don't have access to the main contents as they were handled by LVM. 
How can I now acces those filesystems?

The state of the PC is:

[root lcomp5 ~]# mount
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 on / type ext3 (rw)
/proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext3 (rw)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
gvfs-fuse-daemon on /home/gary/.gvfs type fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon 
/dev/sdb1 on /media/-boot type ext3 (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal)
[root lcomp5 ~]#fdisk /dev/sdb

The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 9964.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
   (e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)
