[linux-lvm] Reducing the Linux LVM(8e) partition itself (not PV, VG or LV)

I have a /dev/hda6 partition as Linux LVM(8e), its size is around 8GB.
I have one PV(no free PEs in it all are allocated) in this partition.
This PV has a total size of around 7GB.
I have also made sure that this PV is contiguous from the start of the
LVM partition hence it is confirmed that the free 1GB is at the end of
I want to reduce this Linux LVM(8e) partition and recover this 1GB free
space to create a fat32 partition.
When i tried to print partition table of this /dev/hda6 through gnu
parted, it gave error "Error: Could not detect file system." and so
qtparted does not work either.
Is there anyway to reduce this linux LVM (8e) partition safely?
I have FC3 and gnu parted 1.6.15.
