You mount filesystems, not disks.

Assuming you have already installed the disk and done a 'boot -r', then you just use the 'format' utility to size your partitions, then use 'newfs' to create a filesystem/s, then use 'mount' to mount the filesystem.

If you want to mount a remote hard-disk;
mount host:/usr /mnt

This is a temporary mount.
host ==> your remote hostname
/mnt ==> your local mount point

If it is a local hard-disk;
newfs the new hard-disk followed by 'format'
then you can 'mount /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s0 /mnt' etc.
Assume your new hard-disk is in target 3.
