Yes root is on a LV on RAID1 and the data is on a LV on another RAID1

Therefore I will install a new system and I'll just take the disks
that belong to /dev/md3 and put them in this new system. So I'll
have the old system to put the disks back if anything goes wrong
in the new system. 

In the new system I just need to pvmove the the data onto the new 
disks, this time hardware RAID instead of software RAID, so no 
fancy stuff to get lilo boot with root on LV.

So how should I do it, just "vgscan;vgchange -ay" or do I need to
vgexport/vgimport and will this cause troubles?
