I had only Fedora 13 on my Dell Inspiron 1545. I found that there is a harddisk named volgroup in my computer & one another disk on which Linux is installed.

The problem is that I can't access that space of my harddisk. It cannot be mounted. So please help me to geting access that or format it, because no options work on that.

You are using LVM

You do not mount a partition of type "Linux LVM" the same way you mount a partition using a standard Linux file system (e.g. ext2, ext3).
First, let's determine the volume group containing the physical volume.

# pvs
PV         VG         Fmt  Attr PSize   PFree 
/dev/hda2  VolGroup01 lvm2 a-   148.94G 32.00M
/dev/hdb2  VolGroup00 lvm2 a-   114.94G 96.00M

Next, let's list the logical volumes in VolGroup01.

# lvdisplay /dev/VolGroup01
--- Logical volume ---
  LV Name                /dev/VolGroup01/LogVol00
  VG Name                VolGroup01
  LV UUID                zOQogm-G8I7-a4WC-T7KI-AhWe-Ex3Y-JVzFcR
  LV Write Access        read/write
  LV Status              available
  # open                 0
  LV Size                146.97 GB
  Current LE             4703
  Segments               1
  Allocation             inherit
  Read ahead sectors     0
  Block device           253:2

  --- Logical volume ---
  LV Name                /dev/VolGroup01/LogVol01
  VG Name                VolGroup01
  LV UUID                araUBI-4eer-uh5L-Dvnr-3bI6-4gYg-APgYy2
  LV Write Access        read/write
  LV Status              available
  # open                 0
  LV Size                1.94 GB
  Current LE             62
  Segments               1
  Allocation             inherit
  Read ahead sectors     0
  Block device           253:3

The logical volume I would like to "mount" (in purely the computing-related sense) is /dev/VolGroup01/LogVol00. The other logical volume is a swap partition.

# mount /dev/VolGroup01/LogVol00 /tmp/mnt
