I used these two drives seperately prior to adding them to a volume group
When I pvcreated them I used the whole disk not partitions
If I fdisk /dev/hdg I see there is still a partition but in Fedora 2 vgscan -v shows

In Fedora 2 I have lvm2-2.00.15-2 package
In Fedora 4 I have lvm2-2.01.08-2.1 package

How do I get rid of the partiton without losing data
I don't have a backup
