            The followng will extend VolGroup00 (default root) using a new partition /dev/sdb1

            Create a backup of your LVM configuration
            # vgcfgbackup
            Create a new partiton on the disk you want to add to your system;
            # fdisk /dev/sdb
            Enter the following options: n, p, 1, Return, Return, w
            Before you can use a disk partition as a physical volume you will have to initialize it:
            # pvcreate /dev/sdb1
            Find out what Volume group is / and verify:
            # df
            # pvdisplay
            Add a physcial volume to a volume group:
            # vgextend VolGroup00 /dev/sdb1
            (You can use -L option to specify the size if you do not want to use the whole partiton.)
            Verify the new setting:
            # vgdisplay -v
            (the new partiton should be listed as allocatable)
            Extend the size of a logical volume
            # lvextend /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 /dev/sdb1
            Resize the file system:
            # resize2fs -pf /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00
