Yes, I think what happened was that I dd'd to the wrong drive by accident 
since I was using Knoppix. /dev/hda wouldn't boot and that was all she 
wrote! That was the reason for the reinstall.

I can run dd again on /dev/hdb1 as last night I ran xfs_repair on /dev/hdb1 
to see what would happen and it made some changes so that's robably why 
there isn't any VG information?

It won't be worth the time though if you don't think it's possible to fix 
the VG if /dev/hd4, the initial part of the VG is missing and that I 
wouldn't be able to recreate it anyway.

[root@myth ~]# pvdisplay /dev/hda4
No physical volume label read from /dev/hda4
Failed to read physical volume "/dev/hda4"
[root@myth ~]# pvdisplay /dev/hdb1
No physical volume label read from /dev/hdb1
