I am trying to mount a new drive I am only able to mount hdc1(100MB) and not able to mount hdc2

( # fdisk -l /dev/hdc )
Code:
Disk /dev/hdc: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hdc1   *           1          13      104391   83  Linux
/dev/hdc2              14        9729    78043770   8e  Linux LVM

( # mount /dev/hdc2 /hdc2 ) I get:
Code:
mount: /dev/hdc2 already mounted or /hdc2 busy
I have checked fstab and mtab but that drive is not mounted to anything nor is the folder, am I missing somthing. I have also tried to use WHM's format and mount but It does the same thing and only mounts hdc1 - Thanks for any help

(removed old stuff as it may cause problems)

EDIT:
oops, just noticed that is Linux LVM. You cannot simply mount the partition as far as I am aware... you will need to go through LVM stuff. There is quite a bit of information on the internet regarding how to mount LVM partitions. Here is one result from google: http://www.brandonhutchinson.com/Mounting_a_Linux_LVM_volume.html

Thanks for the helpful response - I am running centos and I can’t seem to get the volume group for the drive.
