Yeas I need help ....
I found http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO/recipesplitvg.html

Reading it  through  I  found the chapter "13.7. Splitting a volume
I start reading and applying the advice there, I kindly ask: Is it the right
place for me?

I do want to split the Fedora volume group. I want to free let's say 100 GB
out from the hands of Fedora.

About the data in hdb: that volume is sacrifyed for my Linux experiments. I
could well to reinstall Fedora 5 hoping that in that 3. attempt everything
will work and the result will be let's say 40 GB for Fedora and the rest of
hdb free to be used later. But the partition tool offered by the
installation script has two times been too difficult for me, so perhaps
better to try to learn more by trying to manipulate hdb using recent Fedora
installation. I suppose I already understand a lot about LVM, but perhaps
not enough.
