    1) Find out what block the device (hard drive) is in /dev/
    this is usually in the format device_type device_letter partition_number
    e.g. hdb2 is the hard drive (hd) named b, partition 2
    2) mount the device file system. i.e. make hd contents accessible to linux
    use the following command:

    mount -t type file_system_to_be_mounted mount_point


    mount -t vfat /dev/hdb2 /mnt/ProjectWork

    Hope this answers your question
