Slackware 12.2: Old Pentium D booted with huge.s kernel; Can't find 2nd sata disk


huge.s booted with no troubles. I was going to install slack on my second disk but couldn't find it. Tried parted, fdisk, and cfdisk.

XP: The drives work fine. The second drive is empty and formatted.

System: Pentium D 830
2GB Mem
HD1 320G WD
HD2 250G WD

Gotta be something simple, I'm pretty new to this.

Are they on the same controller? What does the BIOS identify them as?

Bios is good. Identified corectly

The drive works fine in XP so I'm sure its not an actual hardware problem.

I'm not sure what is available at the boot prompt.

I'm reasonably sure there on the same controller, I don't remember this gateway have a lot of drive capacity
