1. Download "gparted" (its an hard drive management utility; Its an
"iso" i.e fileimage)
2. Burn iso and boot using gparted.
3. format drive using ext3 filesystem

4. boot regularly in linux
5. #> mkdir /Newdrive
6. #> mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb2 /Newdrive

7. to mount automatically, add to /etc/fstab
	"/dev/sdb2	/Newdrive	ext3
defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 0"

Hope this helps

Subject: Mounting a hard disk

Dear All,

I am new to Ubuntu, and I would like to mount a hard disk that Ubuntu
did not mount automatically. How can I mount it manually?

Thanks in advance,
