And can you tell the errors you faced while doing this? You can also use live distributions containing Gparted. Parted Magic is one such.

Post your output here showing the error.

If you were able to succesfully do this in CentOS the same process should work in Fedora (obviously depending on what version of the distros you are using - please post this also).

i had an image of a fedora13 called fedora13.img which i dd on a lvm which is 2GB the fedora image is of 1GB

now i use this lvm to boot a xen hvm machine and when i login to the machine and fire the command "df -h" it shows me only 1GB available

Well you're not asking about a filesystems are you? You've never mentioned virtualization at all until now, leaving a lot of people in the dark. You're talking about virtualized disks, which is not directly related to the filesystems on it at all. Does the OS see the larger disk? TBH I'm not sure what exactly defines the size of a virtual disk as far as the guest sees it, but I'd not be suprised if there is metadata within the disk that indicates the size as well as the LV it's in.
