how to get LVM

Hi i have a redhat server:

uname -a
Linux dev4 2.4.9-e.24 #1 Tue May 27 16:15:51 EDT 2003 i686 unknown

so far on this machine all FS is through partitions that were created by fdisk.
I want to use LVM, but i dont see any of the lvm commands. Do i have to install some rpm to get them?
if so, what are the rpms? and what are the system requirements?

will i have to reboot my machine?

LVM = logical volume manager right?
Do you want info on your disk and it's partitions?
Linux has it's own set of tools for that, start with this:

hdparm -i /dev/hda
then read these manuals:

man hdparm
man mount
man parted (if you have it)
sorry if this is not what you were after!
