[CentOS] LVM & Knoppix

I'm probably missing something very simple.
My hard drive looks like this:
[root at mavis ~]# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/hdb: 163.9 GB, 163928604672 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19929 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdb1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hdb2 14 19929 159975270 8e Linux LVM
Inside the Logical Volume there are my / partition and swap partition
and CentOS4 sorts it out just fine.
[root at mavis ~]# mount
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 on / type ext3 (rw)
/dev/hdb1 on /boot type ext3 (rw)
However, if I boot e.g. KNOPPIX, I'm unable to mount anything except the
/boot partition on hdb1.
Is there any way out of this intolerable situation other than doing a
full backup, repartitioning the hard drive without that damnable LVM and
restoring the whole thing from the backup?
