What type of hard drive are you adding, SCSI or IDE?

First, use the "divvy" command to check that the drive has valid OSR5 slices on it.  Mountable partitions will be of type HTFS.

Let's see, the terminology is confusing - first you use fdisk to create partitions, then divvy is used to divide those partitions into slices.  The slices are what can be used as actual filesystems.

Assuming you have the disk properly partitioned and divvied, you can use the mount command to mount filesystems.

The names of the divvy slices will vary depending on whether the disk is scsi or ide.  I believe the ide slices will be of the form hd1, hd2, etc., while the scsi slices will be of the form sd0, sd1, etc.

So, to mount the first partition of an ide hd, you could do something like:

# mount -t HTFS /dev/hd0 /mnt

My SCO knowledge is getting a bit hazy, so apologies if I don't have some of the words quite right.
