Problems mounting LVM-partition

I'm running Fedora Core4 and I have two harddisks in my systems both of which have identical installs of Fedora Core4. Now, I'm using LVM on both harddisks. I would like to know how to mount the LVM-partition on harddisk 2.

I'm able to mount the first boot partition on harddisk 2 by using:
mount /dev/hdb1 /disk2

When I try to mount the second LVM-partition (mount /dev/hdb2 /disk3) the system asks for a filesystem type. I can't mount it by using ext3 as filesystem.

You have to make it available using the vgimport command.
Start lvm by typing "lvm" at a prompt.
Use vgdisplay to view the VG's available, and then vgimport the one that you want to use (vgimport /dev/vgname)
You should then be able to mount it.
