Does the LVM have enough space to keep the data from the NTFS partition (/dev/hda5)? Better: What about /dev/hda1? Could you save the files in /dev/hda5 there? Then you could delete that partition and create a Linux one, put the Linux system there and remove the LVM.
Next step would be to move the boot partition to the end of the disk and expand the extended partition so you can create your FAT partition there...
