finding and mounting logical volumes


How do I find out about and mount Logical volumes from the command line?

fdisk -l does not give me information about logical volumes and I don't know how to refer to them with mount.

Not sure whether this is possible.

Thanks

There are some notes on lvm2 in /usr/share/doc/packages/lvm2, including examples.
Each of the utilities have their own manpage as well as the lvm manpage.
