[linux-lvm] hard disk recovery using usb box



Hi

I am using fedora 4 on a hp laptop.
My motherboard burned out..

When I had installed fedora on this machine I took the
automatic partition option. I kept windows in a
smaller partition and fedora used the rest.

I wanted to get bak my data's puting my hard disk in
an USB box and connecting it to another machine.

I get 3 devices /dev/sda1 /dev/sda2 /dev/sda3
I can acce boot partition from the hard disk but not
windows and not main fedora patition.
(VolGroup00-LogVol00)

{venus:root} mount /dev/sda1
mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'
{venus:root} mount /dev/sda2
{venus:root} mount /dev/sda3
mount: can't find /dev/sda3 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

I get boot partion in sda2
>From suse I can access windows partition in sda1 :
ntfs filesystem type seems to be reconised
I cannot access main partition (which is in sda3)
using suse or fedora.

In /var/log/messages I get
