DOH! need to mount LVM2 volume from RESCUE mode


I was rebuilding my LDAP directory, and system rebooted while LDAP database was still empty! DOH!

Now I can't login. DOH!

Booted DVD in rescue mode, can mount /dev/hda1 which has boot and grub.

I need to mount /dev/hda2, but it's in LVM2 format. How do I mount it from rescue mode?

Or do you know any other way I can get back in?

My nsswitch.conf file used to have passwd: files ldap , but the files part gets taken out by yast DOH!
