    Work out where they are in terms of dev/hdx

    primary master hda
    primary slave hdb
    secondary master hdc
    secondary slave hdd

    Make directories for where you want to mount the filesystems on these devices with useful names

    For example /mnt/backup

    Then put entries in /etc/fstab to mount the partitions on these drives at boot time. Assumes they are partitioned. If not use fdisk or cfdisk.

    For example

    /dev/hda5 /mnt/backup reiserfs defaults 0 0

    Post back or ask on irc if any probs.
