Question unable to fdisk /dev/hdc


howzit

I currently have 3 IDE drives on my RH9 box 2 disks are running raid 0. The other disk is partioned with W2K.

Primary Master --> Linux - Raid 0
Primary Slave --> Linux - Raid 0

Secondary Master --> W2K

Under linux when I fdisk it only sees the first two disks and is not able to see /dev/hdc. Why? and how can I make it be seen buy linux?

I have tried the following and found that the drive is seen by linux, I say this because under my dmesg file it seen and tells me the model name etc, etc. I goto the /proc dir and under ide it also appears.

How do I make this drive seen under linux please help?

Thanking everyone for their input

What do you get upon running parted /dev/hdc print and fdisk -l /dev/hdc?

well it does not see the drive at all no /dev/hdc nothing all the details drom the other drives comes up. I took a look at the /proc/ide/ide1/hdc/
all the files have my hard rive details but when it boots it says something about not finfing Sector 0. I was wondering if it could be that I am running a NTFS pation on that drive

Erhm, what output do you get? It is difficult to assist you when you don't cooperate.

You can get prebuilt NTFS drivers for Red Hat Linux here:
http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/redhat.html

But fdisk is fs-independent.

You wrote, you get info about hdc in dmesg | grep ^hdc, so what do you get when you run the two suggested commands?

And what is logged in /var/log/messages about hdc?
