Acess to other drives

I can't figure out how to make my second CD-ROM and ZIP 100 drives show up or get access to them.  They are both IDE.

well..

pri. master = hda
pri. slave = hdb
sec. master = hdc
sec. slave = hdd

do a "mkdir /mnt/cdrom2" (or whatever you wish to call the mountpoint.

then you do a "mount /dev/hdX /mnt/cdrom2" to mount the seconds cd (replace X with the correct designation)

then do a "mkdir /mnt/zip" and then do a "mount /dev/hdXY /mnt/zip" to mount the zip. replace x with the corret designation. and Y with the partition number of the zip (1 or 5 should be right)
