Well, I *could* simply boot one of the three CentOS kernels in GRUB's 
repertoire just as I do on those rare occasions I boot.   I was hoping 
someone could point me to a utility that will undo the LVM mess 
permanently.  I think I've figured out a way to accomodate my current 
need to have my data available when booted into KNOPPIX but I won't be 
able to try until tomorrow.
