I have Win2K8 running HyperV
I have a virtual server that is setup with only 1 C: drive.

I now need to add a D: and E: drive to it.

How do I do this?

Within Hyper-V Manager, right click on the Virtual Machine you want to add the drives to and select settings.
Then select the IDE Controller, either 0 or 1 will be fine.
Select Hard Drive and then click Add (the Virtual Machine needs to be turned off)
You can select the size of drive and where you want to store it.

Then from within the Virtual Machine you go through the usual Computer Manager Storage to enable the drive.
