Is this a SCSI device or IDE?  If IDE, did you connect it to the primary
or secondary controller?  If SCSI, what is the SCSI ID of the drive?
dmesg should tell you which drive devices were detected during the boot
process?  fdisk /dev/<device> should allow you to view what partitions
are available on the drive.
