Re: How to add drive lvm -

- create a lvm partition with fdisk
fdisk /dev/xxx
n ( new partition )
p ( type primary )
1 ( first partition )
t ( select partition type )
8e ( lvm )

- create physical volume
# pvcreate /dev/xxx1

- create volume group
# vgcreate name_vg /dev/xxx1

- create logical volume
# lvcreate -L SIZE ( 100M, 1G ) name_vg -n lv_name

- Format partition
# mkfs.ext3 /dev/mapper/lv_name ( maybe ext2 or ext4 ... )

I hope helps you.
