    create a mount point first

    cd /

    mkdir directoryname

    mount /dev/hdd1 directoryname

    Assuming your second drive is hdd if your not sure type dmesg scroll up youll see something similar to this

    Probing IDE interface ide5...
    hda: max request size: 1024KiB
    hda: 234441648 sectors (120034 MB) w/8192KiB Cache, CHS=16383/255/63, UDMA(100)
    hda: cache flushes supported
    hda: hda1 hda2 hda3 hda4 < hda5 hda6 hda7 hda8 >
    hdb: max request size: 1024KiB
    hdb: 156301488 sectors (80026 MB) w/2048KiB Cache, CHS=16383/255/63, UDMA(100)
    hdb: cache flushes supported
    hdb: hdb1

    In this case hdb1 is my second drive

    Open /etc/fstab and put in your drive similar to the rest

    /dev/hdb1 /directoryname ext3 defaults, 1 2

    This is merely an example.
