I have removed Windows from a partition. So it is now empty and could be
used an included in the VG. If it's possible to resize the partitions...

/dev/hda7          1923      2520   4803403+  8e  Linux LVM
/dev/hda8          2521      3198   5446003+  8e  Linux LVM
/dev/hda9          3199      9729  52460226   8e  Linux LVM

/dev/hda7 is VG system, /dev/hda9 is VG data and /dev/hda8 the new and
empty partition. I have no space to backup /dev/hda9 for merging hda8
and hda9. There seems to be no "pvresize" for LVM1.
