The problem is that it is an ext3 partition in an LVM partition. SO
you can not mount it directly. You would mount something like:

mount /dev/VolGroup01/LogVol00 /data

Where you may run into a problem is that it may be VolGroup00
instead of VolGroup01 and VolGroup00 is probably being used by the
new installation as well. You may want to take a look at the LV
tools. (man lvm is a good place to start.)
