Then in that case, parted will certainly be able to rebuild the
partition table.  Of course, make sure to point it at the device that
holds the partition (e.g., /dev/vg0/lv?, or whatever your scheme is).
Beyond that, I can't really be any more help.  You will need to read the
parted docs, as it is a fairly complex tool, or use qtparted, though I
am not sure how well qtparted measures up.
