I'm assuming you are using Puppy 4? You need to press the desktop icon called "mount", select the the drive you want to access from the list and click "mount". Then you'll have access to the files on that drive.

Your installation of Puppy should have detected your hard drives and added them in your /etc/fstab file. You'll have to edit your fstab file if it didn't.
