Somewhat Solved,

After the partitions were copied over, I needed to get rid of the
references to the logical volume manager in serveral files:
/etc/fstab
/etc/mtab
/boot/grub/grub.conf

Then run:
mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.18-53.el5.img  2.6.18-53.el5
Replace the version info by whatever kernel is loaded.

Then run grub and enter:
root (hd0,0)
setup (hd0)


I still go some funny udev errors, but the system came up.
There may be other files which need to be cleaned up that
I have not found yet, but at least the system came up.
