How do I add a node to an existing 2003 Cluster

I have an existing 2003 cluster and need to add a 3rd Node to it. On my SAN I have mapped the existing Quorum volume to this 3rd node. When I bring up Disk Administrator on the 3rd node it is asking me if I want to initialize the disk and format it. Of course I do not want to format it since it is the working quorum for the Cluster. Do I need to break my Cluster to assign the Q: drive to the third node so that I can go back and add it to the Cluster or will the Cluster Admin automatically detect that I am trying to add a new node and know that this new volume is the quorum? I hope this made sense.

What I remember from the procedure the program should recognize that you add an extra node. Anyway you have some nice info here: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windowsserver2003/library/ServerHelp/8e8bd392-62b5-4a76-9145-ac1eb7765cbd.mspx
