The problem is probably that sdc2 is an LVM volume, os it is a
little harder to mount. Probably the easiest way is to look at
/etc/fstab on F7, and copy the entry for /, changing / to match the
desired mount point.For example, if fstab has:
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
you would want to do something like:
mount /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /mnt/test.
The reason you can mount /boot is because it is not an LVM volume,
but is a standard ext2/3 file system. If you do not want to boot F7
to get the information, you should also be able to get it when you
have sc1 mounted by looking at /mnt/test/grub/grub.conf and looking
at the root= line.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
