I need help with the steps to add  a new disk to a linux box with Veritas.

Disk /dev/sdc: 32.2 GB, 32212254720 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3916 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk /dev/sdc doesn't contain a valid partition table

I want to add /dev/sdc disk under current disk group webapp and create a new filesystem for it.

Thanks,
HD

in virtual machine settings, in disks, click "add disk", select "physical disk", select /dev/hdc.

the virtual linux boax already sees the disk.  I need to know how to add it to Veritas Volume manager.
