My partition setup is as follows just as Jarod suggested:

Partition  	Mount Point  	Size  	             Format
/dev/hda1	/boot	          50-100MB	      ext3
/dev/hda2	swap	         512MB 	              swap
/dev/hda3	/	            8-12GB	         ext3
/dev/hda5	/video	         Everything else      xfs

So would add a volume group for hda5 and then extend it?  Sorry,
totally confused after reading last link and where it talks about
using ext3.
