View Full Version : [ubuntu] Adding a harddrive

July 6th, 2009, 10:04 PM
So right now on a linux box that I have connected I have a 160gig Sata that I installed Ubuntu-Server (and desktop) on. I have another 500gb Sata thats unplugged that had an old copy of Windows Xp on it that I'd like to add as a second hard drive for data storage only. What would I need to do to add that second drive other than just plugging it in?

I am newbie linux but not affraid of command lines so if you could let me know what to sudo ;) or how to do it through the desktop interface either would be very helpful.
