Recovering from dieing harddrive

I have a system that seemed to die, the hard disk still spins up.  All
my systems (Fedora or CentOS) use LVM.  I mounted the drive in a 2nd
computer and followed the steps outlined here  but still cannot seem to get
it to mount.


I can see the Volume Group and the Physical Volume, but there is no
Logical Volume.  I really really really need this data.  Unfortunately
the last backup I have is about a month old and there is too much that
would be missing.  Any ideas?
