Retrieving data from external disk with lvm partitions?

After installing F11 on a new hard disk (I used the upgrade to F11 as an
excuse to buy a faster disk) a now want to copy over some data from the
old hard disk containing F10. I attached the old drive to the system via
a sata-to-usb converter but I am unable to mount any of the lvm
partitions on it.

While trying to various lvm commands I can see the partitions but I
cannot mount them as there are no corresponding devices in /dev
or /dev/mapper.

pvscan output:
  PV /dev/sdf2   VG VolGroup00   lvm2 [931.31 GB / 32.00 MB free]
  PV /dev/sda2   VG vg_paragon   lvm2 [931.31 GB / 0    free]
  Total: 2 [1.82 TB] / in use: 2 [1.82 TB] / in no VG: 0 [0   ]

pvdisplay output:
  --- Physical volume ---
  PV Name               /dev/sdf2
  VG Name               VolGroup00
  PV Size               931.32 GB / not usable 7.11 MB
  Allocatable           yes 
  PE Size (KByte)       32768
  Total PE              29802
  Free PE               1
  Allocated PE          29801
  PV UUID               rlSI5y-Tp8c-TdGq-dMO6-vMEU-zKRx-ftKgsw

VolGroup00 is the partition I want to mount.

What magic commands do I need to be able to mount the lvm partition on
the external drive?
