plug hard disk to free controller interface (if IDE disk don't forget to set proper jumpers on it for master, slave, etc).
after boot the disk should be available as for example /dev/hdb, then create a filesystem on each partition and mount the filesystem. As it is fedora, I guess there is some GUI for that ...

Hi,

The best tool to use it fdisk, you can partition your hard drive by doing:

fdisk /dev/hdb

Once your in fdisk just press m for help its pretty simple to use.

Once you have setup your partition table to format it with a ext3 file system you can do:

mkfs.ext3 /dev/hdb1

Disk Druid is the GUI for it:

Then make the fs using 'mke2fs'

and finally mount to 'mount' the new file system at the appropriate point in your file structure. You may wish this to occur automatically at boot, in which case, you will need to edit your /etc/fstab:

teera ,  you might want to do a fdisk -l to list the the number of hard disk you have. if you already have hda and hdb, then next hard disk you add will be hdc.
