Yes this will work just fine. The only issue you really need to consider
is whether the VG names on the old/new systems will collide. If they are
both fresh f12 installs then you should be fine as Anaconda now adds the
hostname to the names of VGs it creates by default.

If there is a collision then you may want to look at the vgimportclone
script in recent LVM2 releases (included in f12's lvm2 package).
