can't find second hard drive on antix

I have two hard drives in my computer. I always use two, one for my software and the other for files. This is my first real try at using a linux os. I installed antix in this computer, its an older dual pentuim 2 with 2 400mhz processors and 728mb ram. Install went well and there is no other os on this machine. But I can't find my second hardrive, it shows on boot up but I can't find it any where in antix.

Sounds like it is simply not mounted. Try this:
fdisk -l
From the result you should be able to figure out what the second hard-disk is.
Mount it:
mount /dev/sdb1 /media/disk
You may mount it where you like (/media/disk; /home/user_name/data/; /mnt/data would all sound reasonable). You need to adapt the sdb1 to the output of 'fdisk -l'.
Once that does work you may edit /etc/fstab to make it permanently mount during boot.
