Ok, since thr forum was down I didn;t see your last post, but I got a hunch and loaded my Xandros Install disc, clicked Custom Install, clicked on Manage Partitions and Hard Drives, assigned a file system and mount point, then clicked cancel so it wouldn't load the os on my second drive....and it worked!
I rebooted a few times to test it and it was still working
However, it turns out that Xandros has issues with a mix of IDE and SATA, and it fugures that I have Xandros on my IDE drive and my second drive is SATA.
So, after rebooting this morning, I can't see my second drive under All FIle Systems anymore.
So, now I have to figure out how to get it back, rebooting didn't help.
I need to remember this isn't Windows and I don't need to reboot all the time. lol

You rock man, I appreciate all your help
Ok, here is the output...

I did load files on this second drive yesterday when I was able to access it, I hope they are still there.

Obviously the drive is partitioned ok. Do you remember which filesystem you used to format it?
We'll suppose it is reiserfs like your other ones.
So you can try to mount it and see if it works.
1) Create a mount point (as root)
cd /mnt mkdir somename
2) Mount the drive (as root)
mount -t reiserfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/somename
3) Make a symlink for it in your /home directory (as a user)
cd ln -s /mnt/somename
Then try to browse the directory (/home/yourself/somename), copy files to it, etc.
If that works, then, as root, add a line to /etc/fstab so it gets mounted automatically upon booting your computer :
/dev/sda1 /mnt/somename reiserfs defaults 0 2"To express yourself in freedom, you must die to everything of yesterday. From the 'old', you derive security; from the 'new', you gain the flow."

File that might help you
I run Xandros 3.02 Business and when I first installed it it had problems detecting my SATA drives. It would see them sometimes then go away in the Xandros File Manager.
I contacted support and they gave me this file which I have placed on my server. It's directly from Xandros and might help your SATA drive issues... Cant hurt anyways.. Installed fine in Xandros Networks.. Good luck..
File here xandros-detect-disks_1.89-2_i386.deb

Yep, I used ResierFS like the other one, I followed your directions but I got a message saying that the mount already existed. Which it should I guess since I made it yesterday, but at least with your method I knew it was still there!
So I did as you said and stopped when I got the error message.
Hi ReviewLinux (welcome btw!),
That file did the trick man, thank you! I've rebooted several times to test and my drive is showing up everytime, seems to be faster to access now too than it was before. Looks like that deb works for Xandros Deluxe 3.0 too.
Thanks for all the help guys!!!
I know I keep saying it, but I love this forum, I just made it my home page.

Heah glad to help... I'll leave the file on my server in case others out there have the same issues.
Been using Xandros for 1.5 yrs and even though there is never a lot of bleeding edge updates ( newer packages ), it runs as stable as anything I have used just always a little behind the FC and SUSE and that popular Ubuntu... in new software packages.
I use it because it just gets the job done....

Awesome, I told a few people on the Xandros forums about that link who are having the same problem I was. You rock man
Ashame Xandros is behind in software updates, hopefully they get on top of that. I know their are many softwares I'd like to install easily from the Xandros Network but can't.

Again no problem...
I'll keep that file on my server and hopefully it will help those other Xandros users.
