It sounds like Fedora used LVM (Logical Volume Management) for its root
partition. If so, you will have to mount the LVM volumes rather than the
physical partitions. See if "lvscan" returns a list. If so, mount those
volumes up instead and you should have your data.


        [root at pheasant ~]# lvscan
          ACTIVE            '/dev/vg0/home' [30.00 GB] inherit
          ACTIVE            '/dev/vg0/swap0' [1.50 GB] inherit
