While I haven't worked thropugh all the steps yet, it sounds like case1 above is a model for what I want to do.
That's if your existing drive is already on LVM (excluding the boot filesystem which is usually in its own small partition).

Yes, it may be overkill in a lot of situations. My home servers use LVM; my Ubuntu Netbook does not, as Ubuntu (at least 9.xx) did not have an option to install to LVM Logical Volumes. On the Netbook I've survived perfectly well without LVM. On the servers, I can imagine life without it.
