1) start menu -> system -> configuration -> configure your desktop. In the new window go to Peripherals -> display. You can set up your monitor here. To save the settings so that it loads everytime at startup, check the "Apply settings at KDE startup" box.
You may have to install some drivers for your graphics card if the resolution/refresh rate you want isn't available.
2) start menu -> system -> configuration -> configure your computer. Enter your root password. In the new window go to Mount Points -> partitions. Below the file types graphic, you'll see two tabs - hda & hdb. Click on the hdb tab. Click on the partition you want to access and then click 'mount point'. In the new window that opens specify your mount point as /mnt/winstorage (or whatever you want to call it, just make sure you locate it in the /mnt/ directory - so it could be /mnt/drive2 or /mnt/storage or /mnt/stuff etc etc) and click OK.
When you want to use files on the slave drive, just navigate to it's directory (/mnt/whatever) and you'll see all your files there. If it's a FAT32 partition you can read/write. If it's NTFS you can read only.
