Thanks Bryn.  I actually did quite a bit of searching before posting,
and found your message you reference, but it wasn't applicable as your
first step was to deactivate the VG (and I can't deactive the existing
VG with mounted LVs).  But, I should have looked at Alasdair's reply,
which solves that problem.

Sorry for the noise, and thanks for pointing me to his reply, I'll give
it a go.
