Resizing LVM-formatted partitions

My main disk has two partitions:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 25 200781 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 26 20023 160633935 8e Linux LVM
/dev/sda1 is /boot. /dev/sda2 contains an LVM Volume Group with 3
logical volumes (/, /home and swap).
I want to increase the size of /boot from 190MB to 500MB. If I use
gparted, I'm afraid of screwing up the LVM partition since gparted
doesn't understand LVM.
Do I need to mess with Physical Volumes to achieve this? I find the LVM
documentation unclear, and Palimpsest doesn't seem to address this sort
