cant install new hard drive in kubuntu 7.04

hi im running a amd mobile 1800+ with 726 ram and a 250 g and a 40 g hdd.
i installed kubuntu 7.04 on the 40 g disk and then i added linux mce to it because i want a media pc for my theatre i also would like lots of storage on it so i can keep all my movies and music on it and whatever.
so i added a 250 g drive as the secondary master it was previously used on a windows machine though not sure if that makes a difference but when i go into the disk manager and click on it and select new and i enter the mount point and device name and then i click ok and it changes the swat drive or the cd drive to the stuff that i entered and doesnt change the drive i want to change. any input would be great cause i really dont know what going on or what im doing.

thanks matt

You have to edit your fstab.
This may help.

For windoze partitions.

For linux partitions.
