Adding Hard Drive to SCSI in VMWare

We are running a HP Proliant server with VMWare 4.0 running two virtual OS's (one of exchange, one for Blackberry).  We added a hard drive to the 5th slot of the system.  The hard drive appears in vSphere, but how do we initialize and add this disc to the current store so we may expand capacity on the Exchange OS?

Thank you in advance.

You need to add it to the VM
Then go into Windows and set it up as it would be a physical server

add the new disk as an extent and extend the existing datastore. once the datastore is extended you can then use vmkfstools command or vi client to extend the virtual disk of the virtual machine
