Replaced the scsi cable per suggestion and it appears to make no
difference in that 'I/O error: dev 08:11, sector 0' is logged when
running vgck.  No "scsi:" errors were reported with this drive.

Still curios about this one as I did not create it and cfdisk does not
seem to recognize the partition (just reports free space).  How is
this partition locatated in relation to the disc device?  I get the
above error if dd if=sdb1 but I would think the sector would be
reachable via the the disc device also... perhaps there is something
wrong with the device partition?

Does lvm use the first sector?  If not, could it just be bad data that
is somehow read and therefor complained about and could be wiped?
Should I create a partition and feed that to pvcreate instead of
giving it the raw disk?

Any input is greatly appreciated...
