then the new one must be in sdc or what i get  
fdisk /dev/sdc
unable to open /dev/sdc

But  i get respond for hdc

You will not be able to write the partition table.
Device contains neither a valid DOS partition table, nor Sun, SGI or OSF disklab
el
Building a new DOS disklabel. Changes will remain in memory only,
until you decide to write them. After that, of course, the previous
content won't be recoverable.

Warning: invalid flag 0x0000 of partition table 4 will be corrected by w(rite)

PLEASE
Help Help

The command "dmesg" should reveal the harddisks detected during bootup, and the assigned device name.

As shown above, you can see sda and sdb. If you can't see sdc, then the 3rd harddisk is not detected. It could be caused by SCSI termination problem, check the jumper on the harddisks.

If you find hda or hdc, then the harddisk is an IDE/ATA harddisk, plugged to the IDE/ATA bus tape instead of SCSI. There should also be relevant info in dmesg for IDE/ATA.

Hello,
There is no jumper in disks. It's hotplug ind scsi disk.

hdc is your CD Drive, most likely. Does your SCSI adapter have a builtin tool which shows you the attached devices? You should be able to enter that tool when booting your system. Adaptec controllers usually are accessed with ctrl+a, check your manual for how to get into that tool.

rindiCommented:
This depends on the other hardware, it would have to support hotplugging, if you try that option on hardware which doesn't support hotplugging, you could damage something.
