[linux-lvm] broken computer

I have a quick question. I have been running lvm on my system for a while, it  
works very good. However, the motherbord is wearing and the thing refuses to  
boot. Can I, if I put my hard disk in another system, mount the lvm volumes on  
it? I need my data right now...   
Normally the drive is on hda, but it will certainly have another adresse in my  
other box, since I only have athlon-optimised kernels on the faulty box and  
the only other useable machine I have is a p133, which has to boot from a  
smaller disk (1024 cylinder limit you see). My root filesystem is not in the  
lvm volume.   
P.S. I am NOT on the LVM mailing list, so could you please CC me? Thanks.
