I now how to expand a LVM by creating a new drive as described here: 
http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos/2007-February/032664.html, the steps 

# pvcreate /dev/sda3
# vgextend VolGroup00 /dev/sda3 

Now, I want to know how to expand a LVM without create /dev/sda3?

Suppose I have 2 GB free (unpartitioned) and LVM use /dev/sda2 (8 GB). How to 
make /dev/sda2 become 10 GB? Then resize LVM to 10 GB.
