Problem with the created Logical Volume
I have dual booted configuration with Fedora 12 and Windows XP running. I have reinstalled Fedora 12 yesterday as something (I don't know) gone wrong and I was not able to login into either Fedora or Windows. While installing Fedora 12 has taken a full free partition (with 100 GB) as logical volume for root, which I haven't noticed at that time. Later I have reduced this logical partition for root as 30GB and remaining space is left unused. I have two questions now.
1) Is there anyway, I can free up this unused logical volume space and add it to the uninitialized entity, so I can use it windows?
2) After installation, I had logged into Windows network, where a Found new Hardware wizard for generic volume keeps on popping up. It's really annoying to have it popped up again and again. I have raised this here as I want to know is there anything from Fedora I can do to avoid this.

I'm not expert with lvm, but maybe you need to resize your phyical volume to 30GB. And format the rest of the partition with fdisk.
