"This NHF assumes that you have already physically installed your hard drive
in your computer and configured it in your computers bios
1. Type "dmesg | more" to find out what the drive is called. If this will be
the second drive in your system...it will probably be something like
"/dev/hdb" (while the first drive is hda). Once you have found this in
dmesg...make a note of it as you will need it later. For this NHF, we will
assume that the new drive is /dev/hdb."
