Trouble with PCI IDE card
My computer has two hard drives, one 80gig with windows xp and a 20gig with SUSE 9.2 installed on it. I also have a DVD drive and a CD burner. I got a new 200gig hdd for my xbox so i decided that i should take the old, 80gig, hdd and put it in my computer. It was then that I realized that I was going to have to purchess *something* to be able to have all 5 IDE devices running at one time.
So i drove down to my local CompUSA to try to buy a splitter cable or something to solve my problem. Upon my arrival the sales representative informed me that it would not be this simple. He sold me a CompUSA brand PCI card that I could just insert into an empty slot and plug up to four more IDE devices into that card.
The included software cd contained drivers for windows, and windows only (typical). I was able to install the software, format the drive for windows, and use it normally with windows xp. With xp, once the card was installed, it automatically saw the new drive. I was hoping that linux would be so kind, but unfourtunatly it is not.
I am a relative newbie to linux and have no idea how to go about getting this to work. I want to mount the drive, just like SUSE did for the other windows partition automatically when I installed it. Any help / ideas will be much appreciated.
