GPL/LGPL confusion

Okay, I've gone through debian-legal archives, I've looked on the FSF site 
and the summary is that I'm rather confused.

1. Can I package an LGPL library foo that links with a GPL library bar?

2. If so, is it appropriate to put a notice in the copyright file for foo 
that this library links with a GPL library and thus any software that links 
with foo must be GPL-compatible?

Please CC me on replies; I'm not subscribed.

Thanks - Ben.
