How to reduce LVM partition ^


I recently made a dual-boot of FC5 and Windows XP.

However I only gave around 80GB to the Windows XP partition while I gave like 400 GB to the FC5 LVM partition.

I wish to reduce the FC5 LVM partition to 80GB and use the remaining space for a regular, vanilla ext3 partition usable by both XP and FC5.

How do I do it, without having to reinstall FC5 ?

Thanks and have a good day,

Review: do realize Windows XP has no native support for reading/writing to ext3 partitions while Linux can read/write FAT32 partitions natively. Linux and by defaukt Fedora Core 5 does have fuse and ntfs-3g for reading / writing NTFS partitions also.
