Default Adding Additional HDD to Feisty Fawn

I have set up a LAMP server using the instructions at The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (Ubuntu 7.04 on an 80Gb HDD. I have now added a second HDD (250Gb) with a view to providing more space for my users.

At the moment I can not see this HDD and I daresay that is because I have not yet mounted it.

I would like to set up the drive and include 'Quota' as per the instructions at The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (Ubuntu 7.04) - Page 4 Item 10 'Quota'!

Can anyone assist me in getting my additional hard disk drive operational please?

First you must format the hard drive (e.g. with fdisk, see
man fdisk
). If your new HDD is /dev/sdb, you can use
fdisk /dev/sdb
Let's say you've created a partition /dev/sdb1 on it:
Afterwards you can mount it, e.g.:
mkdir /new_hdd
mount /dev/sdb1 /new_hdd
You can also create an entry in /etc/fstab if you want to have the new HDD mounted automatically whenever the system is booted.

And afterwards you can apply quota to /dev/sdb1, as shown in the Perfect Setup (of course, you must adjust the paths).
