LVM takeover of 0x83 Linux

I finally killed the windows partition, and have never looked back.

It is now time to spread the 1.6 gig or so among my well working, everything-is-finally-the-way-I-want-it Suse distro (9), of which I have:

/dev/hda 5.5 GB MK6014MAP 0 12415 (this is set to the entire HD size?)
/dev/hda1 280.2MB OS/2 Hidden 16 623
/dev/hda3 3.6 GB Extended 4256 12402
/dev/hda5 372.4MB Linux Swap swap 4256 5063
/dev/hda6 3.3 GB Linux native / 5064 12402

**** here is where a new created LVM partition would enter**
/dev/hda2 1.6 GB Linux LVM 624 4255

What is the best way to spread the 1.6 GB?
If I mount it at say, /usr, or anywhere else, does that destroy or alter those current file systems?
Or should I make it an LVM and use it for extra space somewhere in /home?
Does an LVM need a mount point?
Is it even possible to add this space to the current /dev/hda6, and just make it bigger?
