Ubuntu Second hard drive mounting
Good evening all, A few months ago I installed Ubuntu with some help from a buddy thats now in Iraq. I cant remember all the commands to mount the second hard drive from scratch as I did a reinstall. I know you have to Sudo something and then mount it but I honestly cant remember and my friend is not available. I have a 80Gig drive that the system is installed on and another 300 GB drive as a slave. Its the slave that I want to mount. I am running Ubuntu 6.10 on a 1.2 Ghz AMD with 2 gigs of ram. its also all patched up. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

sudo mount drive/partition folder_you_want_to_mount_to
I wrote that because, while I'm pretty sure what I type next is correct, I'm not posative.
sudo mount /dev/hdb1 folder_you_want_to_mount_to
Also, you can alter your fstab file so it gets mounted on startup. It's located at
/etc/fstabTwo levels higher than a newb.
(I can search google)
