[linux-lvm] LVM data recovery ?

Hi All,

I've been reading the arquives and didn't find an answer to my problem 
and I was wondering how data recovery could be done... because I have a 
server that crashed quite badly. It did not have lvm backups from 
/etc/lvm/archive/ and I wanted to recover the LVM.

I only have two partitions, sda1 and sda2.
sda1 is the /boot. sda2 is LVM, with swap and / (the machine runs fedora 
core 4)with root inside the LVM... now I know that's a bad ideia.

The problem is that I don't have any backups of any LVM information and
all I know is the size of the partitions inside LVM...

Adding 2031608k swap on /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01.  Priority:-1 extents:1 

Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
                       32963596  24207464   8756132  74% /
/dev/sda1               101086     56597     39270  60% /boot
/dev/shm               1037328         0   1037328   0% /dev/shm

can I conceivably recover the data ? how ?
