RAID and/or Video issues


I have Fedora 13 installed and I was trying to get WoW and SC2 to work with Wine. I tried updating my graphics drivers and that appears to have been a mistake. It appears that this now prevents Linux from loading properly.

I decided to cut my losses and just upgrade to Fedora 14. However, there is some data that I want to backup and I cannot get my RAID to mount properly with the Live CD. When I try to access the VolGroup in Nautilus I get the following error:

Failed activating drive: Error starting LVM2 Volume Group: vgchange exited with exit code 5: Found duplicate PV FfyFNpHv0mxE5AtbcQLcBWnkQ5vAyc8t: using /dev/sde2 not /dev/sdd2
device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument
device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument
device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument

If I try to access either of the devices independently I get the following error:

Error mounting: mount: /dev/sdd1 already mounted or /media/08c08afc-2707-4f72-9eb9-b0a2cf27b5f9 busy

Trying to mount either of the devices from a terminal yeilds:

[root@localhost liveuser]# mount /dev/sdd2/ /mnt
mount: unknown filesystem type 'LVM2_member'

I've done some searching but haven't really found any information that has helped in figuring this out on my own. From what I have seen the data from 'fdisk -l' might be useful in determining what I need to do:

[root@localhost liveuser]# fdisk -l

I'm not all that familiar with how the file system works in Linux and I am kind of interested in learning more about it. However, I'm wondering if it might be easier to fix my video issue rather than figure out the RAID issue. On the other hand, I'm not really even sure if there is anything that I can do about the video issue since Linux can't even startup properly.

Any assistance or information would be greatly appreciated.
