Thanks for the response. I'm afraid you've gone over my head (not so hard). I 
did try to figure it out. 
man label didn't help
Where do I put in those settings you suggest above? Or better, where I can go 
and read up to learn what it is you are exactly suggesting? I don't really 
want to add my new drive to existing lvm's (someone else's suggestion) - my 
thinking is to make the new drive a stand-alone /home, which, if I understand 
things correctly, will make future upgrades/reinstalls a bit more manageable. 
Corrections to my thinking on these matters welcomed...
