Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

well first if you slaved it open bios and see if it is enabled or linux just reads the bios output. and then if you slave it make sure you put it at the farthest connector and the master is closest to the board. then some systems want you to use cable select. it is up to bios to read the drive first this is not a linux issue.It is a hardware issue.and now it is a linux hardware issue. and make sure that the jumper is set to slave or cable select.
Another suggestion I would make is to check the Master Hard drive. If the Master Hard Drive is a Western Digital Drive, then you need to move the jumper on it from MASTER SINGLE, to MASTER W/SLAVE PRESENT. I really hate how WD does that with the jumpers on their drives, it's such a hassle.
If the master Hard Drive is not Western Digital, then disregard this message.
He indicated the drive he is adding is a seagate Hard Drive, but I couldn't see anywhere in the original post that he clearly indicated what the Master drive is.. even re-reading it I'm not seeing it. Could just be me though..
