Run out of disk space on LVM

Hi guys

I must say I'm a little confused here. In the past I just created one
large partition for my debian install but for this one machine I setup
seperate partitions using LVM. I may be way off the mark here but I
thought that with lvm I could resize partitions if it ran out of

My current filesystem looks like this:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/debian-root                   268M  268M     0 100% /
tmpfs                 249M     0  249M   0% /lib/init/rw
udev                   10M   64K   10M   1% /dev
tmpfs                 249M     0  249M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda1             236M   24M  200M  11% /boot
                      27G  4.8G   21G  19% /home
                     380M   11M  350M   3% /tmp
                     4.7G  3.0G  1.6G  66% /usr
                     2.9G  283M  2.4G  11% /var

As you can see my /dev/mapper/debian-root is 100% full and I have no
idea how to extend the size to that partition or how to remove stuff
from that partition.

My first prize solution is to move space from my /home partition to my
/dev/mapper/debian-root partition but again - not sure how.

Any ideas please?
