Mount iSCSI Raw Device Mapping to Vmware Virtual Ubuntu OS

I already configured the Vmware side of this and the SAN volume is being presented to the Ubuntu VM.  I'm now trying to get the Ubuntu OS to see the volume.  Do I have to setup some sort of Initiator?

Thanks for the info but I don't think that these articles apply.  The Ubuntu OS is a VM that is hosted by two ESX hosts that are mapped to the volume that I want to map to the VM.  As I understand it, the ESX hosts make the connection to the iSCSI volume on the SAN and then from within VMware, you add this RDM to the VM.  The SAN volume should show up on the VM as a SCSI disk (sdb, not iSCSI).  I need to know how to mount this drive.

It showed up as sdb so I was able to run fdisk and mkfs and now it is usable.
