If you boot the CentOS installer, it should detect any existing RAID and 
LVM volumes.  You'll be able to select individual filesystems to mount 
in the new system, and optionally format them.  Assuming that your data 
is on a volume of its own, you can select the "system" filesystems and 
format only those.

You shouldn't have to manually recreate anything.
