Reboot with the new drive installed.

Linux will auto detect the drive.
You can use 'dmesg' to find what device the disk is using.
For IDE drives, it's easy:
	primary master	=>/dev/hda
	primary slave	=>/dev/hdb
	secondary master=>/dev/hdc
	secondary slave	=>/dev/hdd

Then use fdisk to partition the disk.
Use mkfs to create a file system (format in the M$ world)
Edit fstab to make mounting easier.
See the HOWTO's and RedHat's Install Guide for more info
on device naming/partition naming
