Default How to make LiveCD detect and mount extend/LVM partition

Hi folks,


My HD has extend partition and LVM. Is there any way to detect and mount them on running a LiveCD?


Made following test w/o result.

# fdisk -l
Code:
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1          31      248976   83  Linux
/dev/sda2              32       19457   156039345    5  Extended
/dev/sda5              32       19457   156039313+  8e  Linux LVM
sda1 is mounted automatically with its icon displayed on desktop.

# ls -al /media/sda1
Code:
total 10410
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root    1024 Jul 24 10:21 .
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root    1024 Aug 29 06:14 ..

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1726608 Apr 15 02:28 vmlinuz-2.6.20-15-generic

# ls /media/
Code:
cdrom0  floppy0  sda1  sda5
sda5 seems mounted as well.


# ls -al /media/sda5
Code:
total 2
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 1024 Aug 29 06:14 .
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 1024 Aug 29 06:14 ..
But nothing found on it.

Advice would be appreciated. TIA
