I've installed Fedora 10 on a 250GB SATA hard drive.
I want to use the unused portion (free PE= 4378, about 140GB), but I don't
know how I go about doing it.
I don't want to add it to VolGroup00, but I want it made accessible as a
general storage space.

> [root at localhost Documents]# pvdisplay /dev/sdb2
  --- Physical volume ---
  PV Name               /dev/sdb2
  VG Name               VolGroup00
  PV Size               232.69 GB / not usable 4.58 MB
  Allocatable           yes
  PE Size (KByte)       32768
  Total PE              7446
  Free PE               4376
  Allocated PE          3070

>   PV UUID               DBf14Y-SLFe-cwZy-m1O7-3Jw9-Xhdf-3u42iX
