No, I'm not following you. What have you done, what environment are you in, and what exactly are you trying to do?

When you write "6 GB (already made)" do you mean you have created a .vdi file for it and you have configured the virtual machine you use for Debian (in the Hard Disks section) with that .vdi file attached to a virtual HDD controller?

I just made a 6 GB and it shows up in VB as Debian eXtra and it is a Seconary Slave. I want to make it show up in Debian so I have more space and make that 6 GB as an extra drive in Debian...

So now when you boot Debian in the virtual machine you should have new /dev/sd<a-z> (or maybe /dev/hd<a-z>) and you treat it as you would if it were a new HDD on real hardware -- you partition it, make some file system(s) and mount the file system(s). Presumably "Debian eXtra" is the name you chose to give it when you created the .vdi file.
