Computer Help adding new hard drives

I just added 2 physical new hard drives to my SUSE server. My server is already running SUSE 10.3 version.
Is there a command i can use to add the new space or even see if the system can sees them?

IDE, SATA, or SCSI? Are they connected independently or part of an hardware RAID? Do you use LVM? Whats the output of 'ls -l /dev/{s,h}d*'?

i found out that i had to create the RAID first before the system can see the physical drives

You should be able to see the drives with the dmesg command, which will show the drives found during the boot process.

Please post the output of your dmesg command, using code tags. Thanks.
