Editing FSTAB on a VolGroup Drive


Hello

I have a CentOS server and I wrongly adjusted the /etc/fstab file, and buggered up the boot.. so I'm booting up off slax (Bootable Drive)

But having trouble mounting the drive that contains the /etc dir

When I mount /mnt/hdd2 I get SOME folders, but when I mount /dev/hdd3 I get the "unknown filesystem type 'lvm2pv'" error

Have been googling around for ages, but just cant find something that wont totally root the server up

Cheers in advance

Well, here are instructions for reading LVM drives on Knoppix

Should be the same sort of principle from Slackware I'd have thought.

Another thing - /dev/hdd3 is the device that's describing the entire Volume Group. When you mount, it'll probably be something like /VolGroup00/LogVol00 - but lvs should tell you this.
