Question Removing Hardware from Red Hat

I have a Dell 8200 with BIOS A01 which is running Red Hat Enterprize 3.1.
When this was initially set up hda 60 Gb drive, hdb a zip drive, hdc a CDROM, and on the same cable on second jack is a CD-RW listed as SC0.

We want to remove the zip drive and the CD-ROM and add 2 hard drives.

Is there a facility in Linux to remove hardware

every time I add or removed hard drives redhat detected the change during boot up, I didn't have to do anything.

I know CMOS sees the 120Gb drive because I checked it in setup. However, I dont see it in Control Center/information under storage. I must have to do an "fdisk"?

Yes, give it a try. As root, enter this command
fdisk -l
Note that's a lowercase "L" at the end. That command will simply list out some basic information about the drives that are connected. If you are not seeing the new drive, it may simply be due to the fact that the drive is not mounted. -- J.W.
