Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I know all the command to reduce the lvm
fsck -f /dev/volumegroup/lvm
lvreduce /dev/volumegroup/lvm -L 400M
But when i fire the command
Then i got the following error
root@localhost ~]# umount /dev/volumegroup/lvm
umount: /vg0: device is busy.
(In some cases useful info about processes that use
the device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1))
This is the output of my /etc/fstab file

I think i must remove the following entry from /etc/fstab
Your fstab doesn't help, if we don't know what devices the UUIDs are connected to, but I suspect that your installation lives on the LVM, and you can't unmount your root partition while you're using it (for obvious reasons.) No worries; just boot from a livecd. Fedora's rescue cd mode will work just fine.
