seeing a 2nd harddrive.

I'm trying to setup raid1 in Redhat WS. I have 2 harddrives, one has all my linux stuff on it, the other one is untouched.

I can see the harddrive in the DiskManager for RH, its 'hdg'. I tried mounting hdg in /mnt/hdg, but i dont think it worked properly.

Here's my df-a:

Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hde2             77654608   2975148  70734832   5% /
none                         0         0         0   -  /proc
usbdevfs                     0         0         0   -  /proc/bus/usb
/dev/hde1                99043     14032     79897  15% /boot
none                         0         0         0   -  /dev/pts
none                    256736         0    256736   0% /dev/shm
shouldnt hdg be showing up in there? I didnt format it or anything, should i do that? grr, mounting is confusing heh.

I dont get whats going on

It won't show up til you have formatted it and created a filesystem on it and have it then mounted. If you want to see all of your harddrives, even the ones that you haven't done this yet, use fdisk -l
