trying to mount usb/hard drive

The drive from the 1st system is a 640G drive

The partition data from the system monitor app gives the following:

/dev/mapper/vg_dell45_lv_root        /
/dev/mapper/vg_dell45_lv_apps        /apps
/dev/mapper/vg_dell45_lv_backup        /backup
/dev/sda1                /boot
/dev/mapper/vg_dell45_lv_home        /home

When I pop the drive into a usb drive bay to examine/view the drive
from the 2nd system, I only get the 340M slice of the drive.

when I do a "fdisk -l" on the drives in the 2nd system, it sees the "drive",

Disk /dev/sdc: 640.1 GB, 640135028736 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 77825 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x28000000

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdc1   *           1          64      512000   83  Linux
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sdc2              64       77826   624618496   8e  Linux LVM

So the question is what do I have to "enter/type" at the cmdline to
actually mount the given partition "/apps, /home" of the 640G drive to
be able to access the underlying data??
