On my server box, running Proxmox which is Debian-server based, I had 
two IDE drives, one master and the other slave for data. Then I just 
installed a 500 GIG SATA drive, formatted with the very same proxmox 
install. So the NEW master has sda2 (sda1=boot) as an LVM volume named 
"pve". So does the old master IDE drive. Since the label is the same, 
how do I mount the old IDE master drive LVM partition (/dev/sdb2) named 
"pve" to the new SATA drive (/dev/sda2) to say the /opt directory, 
command line style?? This is a headless server so I'm using ssh to 
access it.

I've never had to dink with LVM before. Any help would be greatly 
appreciated. Ric
