One of trainees asked us How to add additional Disk in Linux (OEL/Redhat) on VMware ?
Adding disk in Linux on VMware is 5 step process

1. Add Disk in VMware by selecting Add Hardware
2. Partition Disk in Linux using fdisk (partition type primary)
3. Create filesystem using mkfs (filesystem type ext3)
4. Create a directory and mount new partition in /etc/fstab file
5. Reboot and test that you can write to new filesystem
