USB Hard Drive not recognized?

I am a n00b in the purest sense of the word.

I honestly have no idea what I'm doing in Linux currently and I guess this is just step one.

I have a Maxtor 5000LE external hard drive (USB) plugged into my box running Fedora2 and either it's not recognizing that it's there or I just don't know where to look for it.

Any general information I can get would be hot.

(I've tried looking in FAQ or for general solutions to this sort of thing but I find the website confusing as of now. I feel like it's assumed that I know too much. Either that or I'm just not looking hard enough.)
