You added the partition as free space to your LVM, you must create new logical volumes or extend existing ones to use that space.

okay, lvextend is what I need to run, right? I can't figure out the
My logical volume is at:

What would the correct syntax be for lvextend? Everything I have tried
based on the man page example and google examples has not worked.

To extend VolGroup00/LogVol00 by 10G, you would do:

# lvextend --size +10G /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00

You would also need to extend the filesystem on that volume once the underlying volume is bigger. You may be able to do this using ext2online:

# ext2online /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00

If ext2online tells you it can't do it, you'll need to use resize2fs after booting from a rescue CD since you seem to have just one big filesystem for the whole system and you can't unmount the root filesystem.
