In GNOME, go to System -> Administration -> Logical Volume Management and you can do whateva you wanna do. Here are basic cmds for shell to create/mod your logical vol/grp.

First, you need to create physics volume.

Code:
# pvcreate /dev/hdX /dev/hdY
Code:
# vgcreate VGNAME /dev/hdX /dev/hdY
Code:
# lvcreate -n LVNAME -L SIZE VGNAME
You can enter size in extents (use -l num option for it) or better use shown switch -L SIZEM or -L SIZEG etc to give size in MB or GB.

If you're very beginner, you can also use LVM Management tool.

PS: Good to see one more Indian Nix user
