I was almost about to give up on this tread (since you havn't really provided
any useful info except for "it doesn't work"). But then I guess I woke up on
the right side of the bed or something... ;-)
Lets start at the beginning (you havn't done so yet).
1) please do give us the output of "fdisk -l", this answers does hdb show up,
and how is it partitioned.
2) please also include the output of "lvmdiskscan ; pvscan ; pvdisplay", this
will tell us if any chunks of lvm data was found.
3) same as 2 for "vgscan ; vgdisplay" but don't bother if 2 didn't find any
4) same as 3 for "lvscan ; lvdisplay -m" but don't bother if 3 didn't find any
With this info I'm sure you'll get better advice/help.
