Mounting SCSI Discs

Hi Guys,

I have an external USB 2.0 harddrive that I am trying to figure out how to mount. Linux picks it up as a SCSI disc at if I cat /proc/scsi/scsi this is the output that I get.

Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
Vendor: TOSHIBA Model: MK4021GAS Rev: GA22
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02

Can anyone tell me how I mount the partitions on this disc? There are two of them. Also can anyone tell me the command to run to determine which harddrives are on my pc?

Any help would really be appreciated
