Can't mount hard drive


Hi,

I have installed the latest Ubuntu on a usb memory stick. I have been trying to mount the hard drive so I can back up my data, to no avail.

fdisk -l gives me the following:

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 31 248976 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 32 19457 156039345 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 32 19457 156039313+ 8e Linux LVM

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt works fine, but

mount /dev/sda5 /mnt gives me an unknown filesystem type error.

Thanks,

Mark

Look up importing logical volumes instead, that says it's not a straight file system you can mount with mount.
