thank you for your answer. I got various errors ...

The reason for this was that all hints and todos I found had the wrong syntax 
(maybe old lvm-version ...). The manpage of vgcfgrestore does not tell  
anything helpful.

In the meantime I found the right syntax and with a little trying and 
stumbling I managed to get access to the important LVs on both disks. Most of 
my important data is available - only one filesystem was badly corrupted. 
Maybe a 'reiserfsck --rebuild-tree' helps (runs at the moment).

So my problem seems to be solved - thanks.
