    check the device name assigned to External HD through 'fdisk -l' command.
    create mount point and mount it.
    Code:
    mkdir /media/ext_hd
    mount -t  <file_system>   /dev/<ext_partition>  /media/ext_hd

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    rw access

    This will mount the drive but not necessarily with RW access.

    On my machines, FC6 will automatically mount the drive bu RO only. I have only been able to mount an NTFS drive RW using ntfs-3g.
