Following these instructions:

*bash #> pvresize /dev/sda
*This doesn't work for me.  :(

Trying to troubleshoot the issue I eventually ran into some doc regarding
the partition size.  Can someone please help me resize /dev/sda4 to what it
should be?  Yes, sloppy admin work, I'm beating myself up pretty good.  I
believe I need to use parted in order to work with file systems this large.
parted returns the following:

root at home:~# parted /dev/sda print
Error: Can't have overlapping partitions.

Ya, I have created quite the problem and all help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Nick
