How to see new hard disk

Dear Sirs:

Have just installed new hard disk, raising to two on this computer. How do i "see" this new hard disk with Konquerer and whatever directories and files it has?
Thank you in advance for your help for such a simple request. (i figure if i can't see it, i probably need to reconfigure the jumpers on it and try again.)

Have a nice evening! :D, with warmest greetings from Mexicali!

RE: How to see new hard disk

I just installed a new disk as well, and I'm wondering what the easiest, preferably GUI, way to set it up is. In the KDE control panel, disk and filesystems has some options but it's not particularly clear to me what I should do to format, partition and mount the disk. Is there a good program to do all this easily?
Thanks for any help,

You could try qtparted, a graphical partitioning application. It might be able to format as well.
