    Default Bizarre HD Problem

    OS: Win98/Mandrake 9.1

    I just installed a new 80GB Maxtor HD (6Y080L0) and, while my BIOS sees it
    and it shows up in dmesg as 'hdd',

    a) It doesn't show up in dev, mnt, /etc/fstab, or /etc/mtab.

    b) /dev/ide/host0/bus1/target1/lun0 is empty.


    Here is the relevent(?) dmesg output:

    Here is what Harddrake2 has to say about my hard drives:

    Model: 90432D3
    Vendor: Maxtor
    Bus: ide
    Channel: primary
    New devfs device: /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc
    Old device file: /dev/hda
    Media class: hd

    Model: 6L080J4
    Vendor: Maxtor
    Bus: ide
    Channel: secondary
    New devfs device: /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/disc
    Old device file: /dev/hdb
    Media class: hd

    Model: MPB3032ATU
    Vendor: Fujitsu
    Bus: ide
    Channel: secondary
    New devfs device: /dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/disc
    Old device file: /dev/hdc
    Media class: hd

    Model: 6Y080L0
    Vendor: Maxtor
    Bus: ide
    Channel: secondary
    New devfs device: /dev/ide/host0/bus1/target1/lun0/disc
    Old device file: /dev/hdd
    Media class: hd

    I installed MD 9.1 on the Fujitsu - the first two are Win98/FAT32.

    I thank you for any help you can offer me. I'm sorry for taking up so much
    bandwidth, but I am somewhat new to Linux, and don't know exactly what
    information you need.

    Looks from dmesg like the kernel did in fact detect it, so
    that much is okay. Let me ask the stupid questions...
    Did you partition the drive after you installed it using
    fdisk (or some such)? After you partitioned it, did you
    make filesystems on the new partition(s) (i.e. did you
    format them)?

    I agree with Steve. Adding the drive to an existing system will only allow
    the system to recognize its existance. It will not add the relevant entries
    to /etc/fstab and will not set the drive up for you. I'm assuming you are
    adding to an existing system as hdd is typically a slave drive on the second
    IDE controller in your system.

    fdisk/parted the disk to set up partition(s)
    man mkfs
    man fstab

    I may be reading this wrong but it looks to me like the OP has both hdc
    and hdd set up as 'secondary'. hdc should be set as 'primary' and hdd as
    'secondary', right? maybe check the jumpers on the hard-drives and the
    cable sequence.

    I don't think that is the case. I think they just need to set the drive up.
    I'd like to hear back from the Op on what is going on though.
