I have Fedora Core4 installed on my machine and trying to make mythtv work for
me. I understand I need to create a new partition /dev/hda5 and mount /video
file system. I've done some reading on LVM and come up with following commands
to install the new partition on my machine. I need to have them verified by
experts as I don't want to risk losing any data on my hard. 

#pvcreate /dev/hda5
#vgcreate VolGroup00 /dev/hda5
#lvcreate -L50G -name video VolGroup00
#mount /dev/hda5/video
#mount -0 remount,resize /video

Below is the information on my machine: 

[root at localhost mytv]# /sbin/lvm.static vgscan
