[linux-lvm] Broken hard disk

I had a standard Fedora Core 4 installation with the root fs and swap
on LVM. I upgraded to Core 5. Everything worked fine. No need to be an LVM
guru so far.
Then I added a new hard disk to the computer and a partition of this new disk
to the root volume. The "new" hard disk then broke down so that I am unable
to access the data on the root volume.
Now I installed the old, hopefully still working disk in a different computer
and booted with Knoppix 5.0.1 to get some of my data back but vgscan -v comes
back with nothing at all.
Disk /dev/hda: 20.5 GB, 20525137920 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 2495 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 14 2495 19936665 8e Linux LVM
Any suggestions how to recover that volume?
