Mounting Local Logical Partitions

How do I mount the Logical Volumes so I can read the rest of the disk??
Or is it something else?? I'm assuming it's the Logical Volumes.

In response to the above message from acidblue and whatshisname:

Would this process be required for local logical partitions as well? Say if I had 10 partitions on a HD and wanted to mount one?

I believe that acidblue and WhatsHisName are talking about LVM here, which is different than a regular logical partition. Just mount your partition as usual...
