Question Need to mount second internal hard drive

I've just loaded Vector Linux on my computer (it's a Pentium 4/2ghz my father-in-law gave us). It seems to be working well, however, I have a second hard drive in addition to the boot drive. This drive is from a previous computer that ran Mandriva Linux, so I would imagive VL can read it. I can't seem to locate it anywhere using the gui. However, I checked the system settings window under "storage" and the drive shows up. It doesn't show up in the "devices" area of the system tray. I don't think I can navigate to the drive using the "file system" window either.
Is there something I can do to -- one, find the drive; and two, add the drive to the devices window so I can mount it when I need to (or, preferably, keep it permantly mounted -- like on a mac or windows computer)?
By the way, the drive was the boot drive for the Mandriva computer, but the jumper is currently set to "slave."
