Need help resizing LVM patition



I have two 80gb hard drives, and use one ~35gb LVM physical volume on /dev/hda4 and one ~75gb LVM physical volume on /dev/hdb2. My /boot partition is /dev/hdb1 in ext3 and my / is mounted on VolGroup00/LogVol00 in ext3 also. I want to reduce the 75gb hdb2 to free up about 25gb so I can have room to install and try out some other linux distros.

I have searched online for insructions, but all I can find is stuff on resizing reiser and ext2 partitions. I am not sure if I need to resize the LVM voume on hdb2 first, and then the filesystem, or if I do it the other way around. What commands do I run to do this?

I want to end up with about 25gb free space to install Debian 3.1 on. And also, how do I configure the grub bootloader for Debian? I would like to keep Fedora's grub as is, and just add one entry for Debian that launches a separate grub menu with Debian and its different kernel versions. Would I just install grub on the new partition? What entry do I make in Fedora's grub.conf?
