In a box with Squeeze I have one volume group (VG1) with only one (at

volumes (LV) in VG1 are are /dev/VG1/root (/) and /dev/VG1/usr. I want
to (1) enlarge /dev/VG1/root, (2) transfer the contents of /dev/VG1/usr
to it, and (3) remove /dev/VG1/usr.
Enlarging /dev/VG1/root is easy (I think) using the lvextend command,
and so is removing /dev/VG1/usr using the lvremove command. What I
cannot find is any command or information to do the second step,
transfer the entire contents of one LV to another. Is it possible to do
what I want to do?
