Now, I have a large corpus of email I'd like to transfer over to the f8

It would be much simpler if I could have MAKEDEV or udev, make
a "/dev/VolGroup01" tree when fc6 is booted, however I can't see how that
would be done.

F8 does see the old drives, all are sdx as opposed to hdx drives, and I
can mount the fc6 boot partition while running f8.  But my attempts to
mount it all failed cuz there apparently can be only 1 VolGroup0X at a
time.

Can someone tell me how to mount the fc6 slash to a mountpoint of f8?

Or how to mount the f8 VolGroup01 onto fc6?
man lvm

Doh! I tried that, but since its lvm2 I used that and got nothing. But, that appears to be the tools page. There is no mention of the word mount, nor is there a mention of lvm in the mount manpage. From there:
       -t vfstype
The argument following the -t is used to indicate the file system type. The file system types which are currently supported include: adfs, affs, autofs, cifs, coda, coherent, cramfs, debugfs, devpts, efs, ext, ext2, ext3, hfs, hpfs, iso9660, jfs, minix, msdos, ncpfs, nfs, nfs4, ntfs, proc, qnx4, ramfs, reiserfs, romfs, smbfs, sysv, tmpfs, udf, ufs, umsdos, usbfs, vfat, xenix, xfs, xiafs. Note that coherent, sysv and xenix are equivalent and that xenix and coherent will be removed at some point in the future � use sysv instead. Since kernel version 2.1.21 the types ext and xiafs do not exist any-
              more. Earlier, usbfs was known as usbdevfs.

No mention of lvm, and an attempted mount using ext3 fails, wrong fs message or??.
So where is this actually covered? I'm reticent to attempt editing fstab
until I know it works as I had a heck of a time recovering from a one
character typu in that once before, it will not skip a bad line and proceed
with the rest of the configuration. Any error there appears to be fatal.
down near the bottom there's a list of other commands; likely renaming a
volume group would get you out of trouble,,,,
