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

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

/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:

[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
