Assuming you mean 'datastore'? When logged into your ESXi host or to vCenter with vSphere Client, click on a host on the left (once you've added the host), then on the right, click the Configuration tab -> Storage link. Then the 'Add Storage' link in the upper right.

What type of storage do you have...local or SAN? If local (within the host), you should see the datastore already.
