Chapter 4. Disk and File System Topics > Adding an IDE Disk to an IA-32 System ...

Adding an IDE Disk to an IA-32 System Using fdisk

As a comparison only to the Integrity procedure, look at the installation of a second IDE disk, this time on your IA-32 system. Keep in mind though that most IA-32 systems, like Proliants, have SCSI disks. It's really not that different from installing a second SCSI disk, but it's worth going over again. Linux automatically detects new SCSI and IDE disks if you already have one such disk in your system. In the example in this section, we'll add an IDE disk to the existing system that already has an IDE drive in it. In keeping with the "how to" format of this book, I'll walk through all the steps required to add the disk.

Just like when you installed Linux on the first IDE drive, you'll employ partitions when you set up our new disk. In the following example, you'll have only one partition that will contain the entire capacity of the disk.
