More on LinuxToday Adding a Second Hard Drive to Linux

Jul 15, 2000, 23:06 (2 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Domenic R. Merenda for this link. ]

"First thing's first, you'll need to physically install the new hard drive in your system. Then boot the machine and login as root."

"NOTE: If enabled, Kudzu (redhat's plug and play daemon) will launch and configure the drive for you, just accept all the default prompts and let it boot Linux normally."

"Once you are in and logged in as root, you will have to run cfdisk, a graphical harddisk partitioning program. ... Cfdisk is pretty self easy to navigate through, the only things you will need to know off hand is the Linux partition type (83) and swap file (82) if you want to make the entire partition an ext2fs. Everything else is labled clearly in there."
