VMware ESX 3.5 Connecting Physical to Virtual ?

I have a Dell Ms300i Iscsi storage array . I plan to make a 1.5 TB ESX VMFS Disk , then use VMware converter to import 3 Physical servers to VM on that one 1.5 VMFS disk, the size is 1 VM 434.5 GB, 1 VM 30GB and 1VM  50GB, then make backup VMs on the the same 1.5 TB ESX VMFS Disk.

I'm new to VMware Converter, my question is; if the first phsical server is C:\ 45GB and E: 389 GB the VMware converter only P2Vs one drive at a time. Do I need to setup another Disk drive on the MD3000i an  NTFS volume to add to the VM as Drive E: and robycopy E:\ drive data from the physical server ?

Converter does support multiple hard drives.  Are you seeing them both on the "Source Data" part of the conversion wizard?

 Make sure they are both checked, and now is a really good time to resize those partitions if you need to make some adjustments.

Here's a picture of the screen I'm talking about.

I did'nt  get the picture, but are you saying I can chosse both disk partitions and resized them before I import ?

Can I add a new disk partition on the VM with Windows Disk Adminsitrator and copy drive E: from he physical server drive E: ?

Yes you can select which partitions to migrate and choose a new (larger) size for them.
