Can I fsck a lvm partion or should I ?

If I want to make sure a system is good under fsck, I can fsck.ext3 partitions such as /dev/sda1 which is my boot partition.

Most of my disk is Linux lvm partitions.  

Is there a way I can check them out also ?

Well there must be some filesystem on your logical volume and you can check that filesystem. The checking of the filesystem does not depend on whether it is on a partition or on a logical volume!

outside of the normal warning, never fsck a mounted file system, there is no difference in checking a SCSI, IDE or Virtual disk /Partition.  when you run fsck, you are actually running a check on the file system.
