I created an LVM-based install on SLED 11.3; I am about to fill up the /<root> partition (~1.5 GB); does SLED automatically grow the partition or, should I manually increase its size before hand?

Do it on your own. Partition growth is not something that I have ever
seen happen automatically since partitions are usually defined at a
certain size (in your case, one that is likely too small depending on what
other partitions exist) for a reason.

Good luck.

Solved: YaST will resize an LVM, thank goodness! Go to YaST and open the Partitioner and it will take care of the rest.
