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 ?

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.
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!

Funny distribution of points ...
