Adding a SCSI Drive to G3 PPC - Mandrake 8.2 Distro

Hi all,

I have installed Mandrake 8.2 on an Old G3. It is up and running, but after trying to install the second drive I am running into some problems. I have tried pdisk to partition the drive but I keep getting errors, saying it cannot write to Block:1. I have dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb bs=100k the drive to wipe it clean.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Best Regards,
