Simple Alasdair, why didn't you ask in the first place.

I added 20G of space to the vmware virtual drive.
pvresize - success
vgresize - success
and then I tried to do a lvresize but it failed.

I didn't understand your original answer but Marian was a bit clearer, however 
I'm still confused and I can't fix my drive.

There are so many fs types and they race them through fedora. I realise this 
isn't your problem but I'm left not knowing how to fix this. I tried gparted 
but it can't resize lvms and I don't know how to resize my sdb2. Could you 
offer any help or point me to a dummies guide since this is a lvm partition. I 
found a guide to resize an ext3 or ext2, but not lvm and I don't know if it 
will break if I try to delete the partition and recreate it?

HYCH,

Hugh
