[linux-lvm] Rescuing LVM Partition



Hello,
 
one of my disks went broke and I don't have a backup for everything.
I was using LVM and /dev/vg/home with ReiserFS on it is damaged.
 
Currently I am creating an image of /dev/vg/home using dd_rescue.
 
The only thing I need to know is, if this is supposed to work with a LVM
partition.
Is the dump of /dev/vg/home a normal (pure) ReiserFS image like if I would
dump a regular /dev/hdaX or does it contain some kind of LVM metadata?
Should I better dump the whole LVM partition (/dev/hda3) or is my way of
accessing the vg the way to go?
 
Thanks in advance for your help.
