[linux-lvm] problem

I had 2 drives in my machine, with a VG across both of them.  The only
thing on the second drive was part of /tmp, so when the second drive
died I didn't really lose anything.  But I have problems now because I
can't activate the VG because part of it is missing, but I can't remove
tmp, so it's a catch-22.  Is there anyway to remove an LV without
activating the VG?  Or another way I can tell it to ignore missing LV's?
