If it is just a lvm problem, then you should first try running pvs, vgs,
and lvs.  Those will tell you what LVM thinks that it has.  Also you
should run 'fdisk -l /dev/sda' (or whatever disks you have) to see what
partitions your system thinks it has.  Man lvm should give you some
general information on the lvm commands, but you will probably need to
read the individual man pages for more detail on the commands.
