mounting boot partition of a standard red hat/fedora install impossible?


I'm trying to get to my grub config file on the boot paritition of a RHEL 4 install, but they use lvm. If I go to /dev I see VolGroup00 and VolGroup01. VolGroup01 is my current running install, and VolGroup00 is the RHEL 4 one.

In VolGroup00 there is LogVol00 and LogVol01. One of those is unmountable ("looks like swapspace") and the other is the root filesystem. If I mount the root filesystem, I can see all the data but the /boot directory is empty.

So, is it even possible to access the boot partition if they use lvm?
