Listing Contractor Names On Resumes

I currently work for Fortune 500 company. When I "started" there, I was a contractor so officially I worked for a different company. Later, I was hired on as an employee, so that Fortune 500 company started signing my paychecks.
On my resume, I want to emphasize that while I was a contractor I worked at the Fortune 500 company. Currently I accomplish this using this format on my resume:
-----
Big Company, as an employee start-end
Job Title location
- skill 1
- skill 2
-----
Big Company, as a contractor start-end
for another company
Job Title location
- skill 1
- skill 2
I think this is really awkward and confusing. How has anyone else done this in the real world?
Thanks!

I'd probably do:


Big Company (as both contractor and full-time)
- skill 1
- skill 2


Or something like that.

Example:
North American Van Lines (June 1990 - Jan 1995)
Java Developer (as Contractor)
.... what you did
Java Architact (as Employee)
.... what you did
Environment: JDK1.4, JSP, Servlets, EJB, IBM WebSphere, WIN-NT, AS400, MQ-Series
---------------------
Above is just a suggestion.
- What you don't want to do is repeat the Fortune 500 company name twice. Just list it once in main heading and use two smaller sub-headings.
- At interview - the person may or may not ask for more specific dates. Can actually save that for the employment application.
