That was supposed to be the point of LVM.  No moving necessary.  They
 are both on the Volume Group, space doesn't have to be contiguous,
etc, etc....

That's what I thought.

I would suggest that when reducing you should use the "same numbers"
for both resize2fs and lvreduce.  Don't use an absolute number for
one and a relative number for the other.

That seems like good advice.

As an alternative, that might be easier, why not install "system-config-lvm"? It presents a graphical view of shrinking and enlarging.....

Thanks, I'll check that out.
