The fd0 error means you need to exclude /dev/fd0 from the vgscan in
/etc/lvm/lvm.conf (or wherever Debian puts it).  Start to worry
if you get I/O errors on sdb or sdc.

You need to show us the output of 'lvs'.  (Even if it just spits out an error.)

Is there an LV named "root"?  I think so, since it would say "special device
does not exist" if not.  But what kind of filesystem did it have
on it?  Maybe it is not an auto-detected one, or you need to load
the filesystem driver.  Does mount report I/O error if it gets one
trying to identify the filesystem?
