This is easy. Are you going to be installing Slack ? during the install to setup your partitions, use cfdisk to setup the partitions.
If you just type cfdisk, it will give you just the first hard drive to setup. Then to setup the second hard drive presuming its the primary slave drive, just type cfdisk /dev/hdb and setup whatever partitions your going to setup from there.
Then after that, run the setup to start the Slackware installation and when it gets to the point to install and setup what directories go where, it should have both your hard drives listed.
If this is any other major distro, they should easily find both your hard drives for you to setup and install with.
Maybe a setup like this:
/dev/hda1 = /boot - 16MB
/dev/hda2 = swap - 100MB
/dev/hda5 = / - 300MB
/dev/hda6 = /usr - Rest of drive
/dev/hdb1 = /home - 600 MB
/dev/hdb2 = /var - 200 MB
/dev/hdb3 = /tmp - 200 MB
This is just an example above... you can make the sizes or order however you see fit.
or something like that could be done.. separating your main system files from your /home directories and temporary/log files on the other hard drive.
Hope this was easy to understand, just let us know if you not for sure still.
