trying to cloned with gparted live CD

I just installed Centos 4.5 on a workstation taking most of the defaults for the partitions which ended up making a small boot partition and the rest of the disk on / using the LVM.

I am trying to copy the entire (SATA) disk to the 2nd disk using gparted on the live CD. The cd boots ok and sees the 2 disks and the partitions on the 1st, but it does not recognize the LVM partition and thus can't copy it.

Any suggestions?

Not sure if it will help, but whenever I need to clone anything, I use partimage, and boot off the System Rescue CD (

It is pretty robust, and has recognized most filesystem/setups I've tried.
