can't see 2nd hd - mandrake 10, previously XP

i installed MD10 over XP on my primary HD... My 2ndary HD was left in tact (at least I hope so). MD comes up fine but I can't for the life of me seem to get to my 2ndary... when i run HardDrake, it shows up like this:

Model: ?WD800JB-00ETA0
Vendor: ?Western Digital Corp.
Bus: ?ide
Channel: ?secondary
New devfs device: ?/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/disc
Old device file: ?/dev/hdb
Media class: ?hd

but when I run config (DiskDrake) or manually mount it, it says its mounted but i cant see it ... console or gui

says type ext2:vfat
