	You have to run a filesystem resize utility to get the
filesystems to change size and occupy the whole lv.  In reiserfs,
extending a filesystem can be done while the filesystem is online.  With
ext2 and ext3, extending the fs online requires a special kernel patch,
but can be done while the filesystem is unmounted.

	In all such cases, rebooting is totally unecessary.  You can do
it all online.

Have fun (if at all possible),
