adding 2nd hard drive to logical volume??
 
okay so i added my drive, formatted it with fdisk, and turned it into one big partition as it's just going to be for random storage.

currently i have a single drive on a logical volume, and i'm trying to get the new drive mounted. i'm following my linux bible as to how to do this, and it tells me to add the line
Code:

/dev/hdd1      /(mount dir)      ext3    defaults    1 1
to fstab, which i did...
Code:

/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /                      ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot            /boot                  ext3    defaults        1 2
devpts                  /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
tmpfs                  /dev/shm                tmpfs  defaults        0 0
proc                    /proc                  proc    defaults        0 0
sysfs                  /sys                    sysfs  defaults        0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/hdd1              /drive2                ext3    defaults        1 1

my question is, did i put this in the right place? also am i going about this all wrong? should i just add it to the logical volume (which i can do through logical volume management via gnome)? or do i have to do both? the book is pretty vague when it comes to logical volumes, in fact there isn't even a heading in the index for it. as far as i understand the drive isn't being recognized, as evidenced by:
Code:

[root@dustyfedora ~]# mount
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 on / type ext3 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/hda1 on /boot type ext3 (rw)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)

i've spent the better part of my day trying to figure this out by myself to avoid this post, so i apologize if my stupidity is just blatantly obvious.

yeah turns out i'm just an idiot and i needed to reboot before i decided it didn't work. sorry for the wasted post -- hopefully maybe my stupidity will help somebody else in the future
