Partition not extendible............


hi guys.........i installed rhel 5 by using default lay out.
so there is no extendible hardrives or partitoins noe in my redhat.

my 40gb hardisk is consumed like this..
/dev/hdb1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hdb2 14 4865 38973690 8e Linux LVM

i wish to create a new partitioin in hdb2.
but it is not extendible. is there any way to make it extendible, so that i can create new partitons.

Last time I looked, RHEL was licensed - in which case I would find installation on a 40 Gig disk surprising.
I would suggest you get the LVM admin guide from the Redhat site; it's a free download.
