Using Ubuntu dapper
Check out dmesg to get name of your drive. For example it is /dev/sda1
Try to mount manualy:

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

If you can see content of your drive in /mnt directory then you can add your drive to /etc/fstab.
/dev/sda1 /mnt ext2 rw 1 1

where ext2 - your filesystem type (possible you need to change it)
