    How 2 add HDD in Linux (SCSI)

    Hi Guys,

    Redhat 9 should automatically detect and install the driver for a supported SCSI interface. Hard disks will be recognized as sda, sdb, sdc, etc. with subsequent numbers like sda1 for the first partion sda2 for the second and so forth.

    Redhat probably has a nifty GUI tool to partition and format or...

    You can partition the disks with the fdisk command -see "man fdisk" or run "fdisk /dev/DRIVE" (e.g. sda) and type "m" for options,

    You can use "mkfs" to format the partitions

    You may have to manually edit the /etc/fstab file to add entries for easy mounting of the drives.

    Have fun
