Laptop Hard drive modules


Hello,

Configuring Redhat9 on a Dell Inspiron XPS laptop. How do I mount the Secondary Hard Drive Module that I purchased with it, that plugs into the CDRom Bay? I cannot seem to get Linux to recognize it.

Thanks!

John

I found the solution for this, and I thought I would share for others out there.

edit /boot/grub/grub.conf, to remove "hdc=ide-scsi". Reboot the machine with the hard disk plugged in, and it is recognized now.

run fdisk to create partition, mkfs, and off you go.

It still recognizes the CD-ROM/DVD Drive after this change.

) of course, that would make a lot of sense, the cd/hdd bay on your laptop must be a seperate ide channel. well done on getting it working
