Moving an existing partition into VMWare

I have been in the process of moving from Windows to Linux, but one problem I have found is that whenever I encounter something that I require Windows for I switch back to the Windows partition and don't immediately return. I realised that using Windows from within VMWare would be better but there is something I'm missing.

So far I have two separate drives, one Ubuntu, one win2k, and a win2k environment inside Ubuntu using VMWare, but VMWare cannot see the other drive. What I'd like it to either let VMWare see the other drive, or import the contents of the drive to VMWare
