Though you are asking a clear and easy to understand question, I am not sure how much you already know about what you will need to be doing to add a second harddrive. So I'll give you a kind of general description of what you'll need to do.

You would physically install the hard drive then create a partition (or partitions) using fdisk. Fdisk can be run from the console or with a GUI it you prefer. Next format the partitions as Ext3 (or the filesystem of your choice) and then add the drive to your current file system using the 'mount' command. (eg. mount /dev/hdb1 /mnt/hdb )

I would galdly give a more specific answer to specific questions.
