Help with an LVM2 server?

Hi Folks,

I recently upgraded my server here at home. This server currently has 3 
hard drives operating under LVM2 and formatted as JFS and I'm trying to 
add a 4th drive (/dev/sda1). The problem is that the howto at talks about ext2fs.

After fooling around, I managed to get vgdisplay to report the following:

--(cut here)--

   --- Volume group ---
   VG Name               archive
   System ID
   Format                lvm2
   Metadata Areas        4
   Metadata Sequence No  28
   VG Access             read/write
   VG Status             resizable
   MAX LV                0
   Cur LV                1

   Act PV                4
   VG Size               745.23 GB
   PE Size               4.00 MB
   Total PE              190778
   Alloc PE / Size       190778 / 745.23 GB
   Free  PE / Size       0 / 0
   VG UUID               dTVTyh-4P0j-aKmx-M8WW-eQNY-VKon-OMrGkY

--(cut here)--

Note that the VG Size is reporting 745.23GB, however when I
issue a 'df -h', I get the following report:

--(cut here)--

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
                       513G  288G  225G  57% /home/pvr
root at vsrv:/home/pvr#
--(cut here)--

The question is, it appears that I'm missing 232GB, which sounds 
reasonable as the additional drive is a 250G?

Can anyone help?
