Have you seen this link? Seems pretty detailed and though it's an older post, comments toward the end show it's still applicable.

This may be useful also http://tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO/.

If you are adding a new disk the steps (roughly) are

0. BACKUP(!)
1. pv new disk
2. add to relevant vg
3. add to / extend LV
4. resize fs
