I have Fedora Core release 4 installed on a 120 gigabyte hard drive. I need to backup the music and pictures before I install another Linux distro. When I was installing FC4, I did not know much about LVM, so I did the default install, and that took up the entire drive. Actually FC4 used LVM2. If I understand it right, logical volumes are inside a physical volume. I need to resize the physical volume, so I can create unpartition free space. Then I will use the free space to create a normal partition to put all of my backup picture and music files before I install something newer on the hard drive. I have other hard drives, but they aren't big enough to backup all of the music and pictures. How can I resize the physical volume and backup my files, so that I do not lose them?
