[CentOS] Consolidating LVM volumes..

Something I haven't done before is reduce the number of volumes on my
server.. Here is my current disk setup..
[root at server1 /]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
15G 1.5G 13G 11% /
/dev/md0 190M 42M 139M 24% /boot
39G 16G 22G 42% /data
none 157M 0 157M 0% /dev/shm
77G 58G 15G 80% /home
16G 382M 15G 3% /var
Rather than try and reduce the size of the VarVol00 volume to make more
unallocated space which I have heard is a little dangerous.. I would
like to get rid of the VarVol00 and have the /var directory on the
RootVol00 volume.. Then I can allocate some of the free space to
HomeVol00 which is filling up..
So how do I do this?
Do I simply copy /var to /var2 and then edit the /etc/fstab file to
remove the line that mounts VarVol00??
Then at what point and how do I rename /var2 to /var to get it all
working as normal again?
Should this all be done in "single" mode?
As you can see I am really not sure about this procedure so any help or
step by step instructions for be great..
