You might try a rescue disk (such as the CentOS 4.x Install disk 1,
choose "rescue" mode).
The CentOS disk does not mount any LVMs by default. This should allow
you to view all of the lvms, run the lvm commands, etc.
And on your second question, are you asking how to boot into single user
mode on a Linux box? This may or may not be useful, as single user mode
might not have access to the lvm tools until after the lvm drives have
been mounted (depending on how the box was set up initially).
