mount SATA disk

I have just got Linux working and am trying to find my way around.
My set-up is
board Abit KW7, Duron 1200
Linux fedora red hat kernel-2.6.13-1.1532_FC4
drives. Linux on 4G ide drive ST34321A
Win on Segate SATA drive ST3120026AS, two windows partitions.

The bios gives me the option which drive boots first.
I first set the SATAas primary then booted from the CD drive to load linux. The load crashed (twice). I had an fault reported- I have 800K of anacdump.txt.

I reset the bios to make the ide drive boot first and loaded successfully. I cannot see or use the SATA drive.

The only thing I can find is that the hardware browser does find the SATA disk. How do I mount it?

Is the anacdump usefull to anyone? Do I post it here?

Thanks, John.

(PS please use small words for an unreformed DOShead!)

just got this working yesterday,
In order to access a filesystem, you need to mount it on the system first.

you can set your system to automount it on startup by editing the /etc/fstab file.

for example :
#contents of fstab file
#device directory type options
/dev/hda1 / ext2 defaults
/dev/hdb1 /home ext2 defaults
/dev/sda1 /mnt/window ext2 defaults

on example above, I mount my one of my sata filesystem to /mnt/window need to create the directory if it doesn't exist yet.

I have a similar problem as well. Im using compaq 7500 machine with two sata disk.
On one disk I have windows Xp & on other Im planning to install redhat enterprise.
When I boot from CD, I dont see any of these disk. Seems to me as a driver problem.
Is there any workaround, If so please let me know.
Its really a pain to make it work with redhat it seems. Im sure it workwith ubuntu, however I need redhat for some reason.
Please help.

Wind0w$ NTFS doesn't mount on linux securely. I strongly discourage it.

Fixed. Those who face this problem, use "ubuntu", it works like a charm.
Redhat is useless in many things,
-> detecting the wireless
-> sata disk
-> installing exe
-> many other
With ubuntu , nothing is impossible.
If anyone stuck with ubuntu, please feel free to contact me
