    Can't see hard drives on dual boot system

    So I recently installed Ubuntu 8.04 with windows XP. Ubuntu is on a second partition an the same hard drive as windows. The problem is that I lost a 400 gb SATA drive in Ubuntu. Windows recognizes it just fine though.

    entering: cat /etc/mtab

    produces:

    /dev/sda5 / ext3 rw,relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 0
    proc /proc proc rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0
    /sys /sys sysfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0
    varrun /var/run tmpfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,mode=0755 0 0
    varlock /var/lock tmpfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,mode=1777 0 0
    udev /dev tmpfs rw,mode=0755 0 0
    devshm /dev/shm tmpfs rw 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts rw,gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    lrm /lib/modules/2.6.24-16-generic/volatile tmpfs rw 0 0
    securityfs /sys/kernel/security securityfs rw 0 0
    gvfs-fuse-daemon /home/andrew/.gvfs fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon rw,nosuid,nodev,user=andrew 0 0
    /dev/sdb1 /media/Backup fuseblk rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime,allow_other,blksize=4096 0 0
    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    and entering: sudo fdisk -l

    produces:

    Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders

    Ubuntu recognizes a external hard drive just fine, adding to my confusion.
