The VolGroup00 is the name of the lvm volume group. If you have the
xfs partition directly on /dev/hda - you have to first convert that to
lvm. I'm not sure what's your current setup is (ie - do you have a
single partition for the /, or do you use /dev/hda as a part of the
lvm volume).
The best way to learn something about lvm is to have a look in the howto:
If you don't have lvm and want to convert to one the easies way is to
add the new drive as first phisical volume of lvm, create a single
logical volume on top of that, format it using xfs and then copy files
over from the old partition/disk. When everything is on the new drive
- add the old drive/partition as next phisical volume and then extend
the logical one to span across both drives.
