Well, that's relatively easy to fix. Pick a unique name for your home
system's volume group; change fstab and grub.conf; mkinitrd; boot from a
rescue CD; vgrename; cross your fingers; reboot. Then you ought to be able
to finish the job you started.

...and don't accept the default VolumeGroup00 name again.
