Hi wizzards,
I'm kind of new to the world of linux, but find it masterfull. I need some help / info on this:

I'm running a ubuntu 9.04 server @ home that I use as my data server (with Samba). I installed ubuntu on a 10Gb disk and got the share and working. Now I want to expand my storage capability by adding a second hdisk (320 Gb) to the system.

So what I'm dieing to find out is;
1. how do I tell my system, that there is now a second disk with 320 Gb that is available for storage; (maybe adding the 320Gb to my current VG of 10Gb ?)
2. what is the best way to do this ... ?

Hope you guys can help me out, I don't have GUI so let those comands role..
Thanks alot!
