slaved hard drive


Hi all... I have Slackware 9.1 installed on two hard drives. On one drive I have a good setup that
has been in use for about eight months. The other drive I do the tinkering. What I'd like to do is
set up the spare drive as a slave and be able to use it for storage. I really don't need two slacks now. I haven't had much luck with google searching this problem. What is the proper way to set this up? Do I need to change lilo? /etc/fstab?
tnx and all the best=== cheers
Neil

/etc/fstab

in this file you will specity where you want to mount the filesystem as well.

in /mnt make a directory called storage or something like that.

then exit /etc/fstab appropriately. do google search.

NOTE: The harddrive is probable already a slave or secondary master. All this refers to is the physical location of the harddrive in you computers box.
