How to install a new hard drive on to existing system


I just had a hard drive lying around and I installed it on one of my machines. How do I set it up in /etc/fstab? I tried a couple different variations and it doesnt seem to work. Any help would be appreciated. Hard drive is detected by Suse 9.1 and worked properly before.

Thanks

whats the name of the hard drive? what file system?

for eg, if its fat 32, and called /dev/hdb then u need to

mkdir /mnt/hdb

/dev/hdb /mnt/hdb vfat defaults 0 0


thats the most basic and it should work

for ntfs, replace with "ntfs"

just add something like:

/dev/hdd /mnt/hdd reiserfs defaults 0 0

and put the options you want in (like noauto, users and such. see man mount for the available options) and change /mnt/hdd to wherever you want it to mount.
