Thank you for the varied suggestions, I think I will try expanding the
filesystem as that is what I was actually looking to do. Working on
backing the system up as we speak just to be safe! I would love to
upgrade the linux however this laptop is being used for some very
specific programs and those have yet to be tested on something much
newer. It is do-able should the expansion fail, but I would also need to
get bootprofile to work on something newer and haven't had much luck
with that (on fedora 10 or newer).


Thanks again, I will report back J

True, I was considering that another LV in the same VG would be more
flexible and provide possibly best use of the disk space available.

Yes, I'd convert /dev/sda1 to a PV, extend the existing VG and LV with
it and expand the filesystem on the LV.  That's the easiest.
