I am running VMware Server on a Windows Server 2003 machine.

I have one Virtual Server setup with a single Virtual Hard Drive of 25Gb.  This Virtual Server, when booted splits the Hard Drive into two partitions:
C$ = 15Gb
D$ = 10Gb

The D drive is almost full and i need to increase it.  How do i go about increasing the size of the Virtual Hard Drive and then increasing the partition?
