Okay this is more clear.  Yes the pv is unused and should be possible to 
cleanly remove the pv from the volumegroup.

It's always more helpful to post the output of vgreduce, but I'll take a stab 
here.

First you should mark the pv as unallocatable pvchange -x no /dev/cciss/c1d0p1
The next step is to remove the pv from the volume group using vgreduce 
Volume0 /dev/cciss/c1d0p1 or alternatively vgreduce -a Volume0

If those do not work please post the output of those commands.
