Question Accessing Slave Drive

I am running RedHat 7.1 and have a slave hard drive that I need to access. The slave hard drive is seen by the BIOS and during the Linux boot sequence. It is formatted with the EFS2 file system and uses the same IDE controller as the master. How do I do access this drive so I can copy data from the slave to the master hard drive?

there are usually four ports on the standard pc if you are using IDE

primary master = hda
primary slave = hdb
secondary master = hdc
secondary slave = hdd

with that in mind use the one you want for hdx below

mkdir /pathtomountnewdrive

mount /dev/hdx -t ext2 /pathtomountnewdrive

update /etc/fstab to make it mount on boot if you want

/dev/hdx /pathtomountnewdrive ext2 defaults 0 0
