[linux-lvm] Problem in LVM settings in VMware


I am quite new to VMware and recently installed a VM of Fedora in my Host OS Win XP. In this VM, I have couple of VMDK files which comes together as parts of vmdk file. Each vmdk file is about 2-3GB size and I have 4 of them totalling to 8-12GB. However, currently, I am facing shortage of space.

What I did was freeing up some space from my Host OS and in the VM, I can see this "unallocated space" partition. So, I have no idea how to proceed with these unallocated space partition. Ultimate goal is to absorb this unallocated partition as similar LVM so these current LVM can expand beyond the existing size.

I am currently using VM server 1.0.5 Build and LVM2. I tried to find several articles from the net but that didnt help due to my specific problem.
I tried Pvdisplay and only able to see one VG even though it has various parts of vmdk. Besides, Im not sure whether issuing Pvcreate for this newly created partition would help.

Anyone could please advise me.

Thanks alot.
