Thanks, Preston. I am trying the following but with no success:
# mount /dev/sdb2 /media/iso
mount: unknown filesystem type 'LVM2_member'
root at mypc:/home/paulus# mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb2 /media/iso
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
