[linux-lvm] LVM and mounting

I am having a problem where when I boot up the machine, the machine says 
I need to fsck one of my logical volumes.  This volume I just added a 
new filesystem to, but it hung on mount, so I rebooted.  Then I tried to 
  lvremove the volume, and it says it successfully removed it, then I am 
running vgchange -a n <grp> and vgremove <grp>.  But it says I can't 
remove the group.. because it belongs to a volume.

I think my lvmtab or someting is all messed up because the some messages 
seem to indicate that the volume is there, and some say it's not. 
lvdisplay says it does not exist.

I would just like to remove the entire volume and group and start over 
so I can get my machine to boot.  Is there some option to just 'ignore' 
or 'force' destroy the volume?  If I fdisk the disk will I still get 
this error?

Any help would be great!!
