Ahhh, I see what you mean now... it looks like /dev/hdb is your second hard drive.

Keep in mind that you may need to format it if it's never been used, or use the mount -t <fstype> if it's a filesystem OTHER than native Linux (ext2, in your case).

Hope that helps, please post back with any more questions.
