Adding a 3rd Node to a CLuster

I have a two node cluster configured with Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise.

Can anyone let me know, how I can add a third node ? Do I need to use Diskpart to make the disks reserved etc ?

no, the LUNs will appear on the disk management mmc (computer management) after SAN Path configuration.
About SAN config, I'm not able to help.

it realy doesn't mater if is the 2nd or 3rd node..the process is quite the same:
As stated above.
Extra steps would be required if the server hosts SQL.

SQL Server: run SQL Server Installation CEnter, choose Installation and "add node to a SQL Server failover cluster"

If I need to present the LUNs from a SAN to the new node, do I need to use DISPART on the 3rd node or not ? Just a little confused....
