Reading an OpenServer hard drive with Fedora

Is there a way to get at the odd SysV volume manager slices if I have access to 
an OS drive? The disk or partition is split into slices, sort of like a crude 
LVM. I need to recover the files from the disk, based on a full raw backup of 
the drive or the drive itself.

I was hoping for a fuser implementation or so, since the extra cost networking 
stuff wasn't bought when the system was built. A local business depends on this, 
and I'm trying to help them recover.
