[linux-lvm] Query regarding conversion of root partition to LV

I have a fedora 9 installation with two partitions swap and /
partition. Now i want to mirror the files on the root partition to
another disk using LVM mirroring. Since i dint make root on a LV and
have no allocated space left so i am thinking of using the free space
on the root partition as a block device that can be converted into PV
and then mirrored after making it a LV.
Is this feasible?
Can someone let me know wht can be done?
