Default howto extendlvm

I want to extend an existing lvm ( volume group "VolGroup00" using
metadata type lvm2)
[root@linux2 ~]# df -kh

/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00

[root@linux2 ~]# vgscan
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...

[root@linux2 ~]#

Can you point out the safe way to do it?
Am thinking to do the following steps on my RHEL5.1
vgs
pvcreate /dev/lun2
vgextend vg01 /dev/lun2
lvextend -L +1G /dev/vg01/lv01
resize2fs /mount/point/of/lv01

Thanks
