Default Help adding second HDD for storage only

Hi folks,

Not entirely sure this is in the correct forum, so if not I appologise.

I have a simple home server setup (CentOS 5.x, Apache, MySQL etc) which is installed on a single HDD. I would like to add a second HDD to the machine but only for serving files to my LAN.

I would like the files I put on this second HDD to be completely separate from primary HDD so that if I need to format Linux for some reason, none of my shared files are lost (all I need do is remove the second HDD and format etc).

Can someone point me in the right direction for doing this please?

Thanks in advance.
