Error with new slave drive on secondary controller


I am using FC1.

I have installed a new drive on the secondary channel.

dmesg reveals:

unable to read partition table
....



I am unable to
fdisk /dev/hdd
in order to write a new partition table. It fails with unable to open /dev/hdd

What can I do to access this drive?

Thanks!

Are the drive jumpers configured correctly?

The drive was configured as a slave without a master. I moved it to master and that corrected the problem.

THanks
