Adding a second SATA disk

Here is the sundocs link that tells you what all is needed to be done for adding a new disk on your machine.

- Connect your disk on your motherboard
- open a terminal and login as superuser
% format
(choose the new disk)
format> fdisk
(create your partitions here and save before exiting ie choose 5)
format> parition
partition> print
partition> modify
(modify your partitions and note down the serial numbers)
partition> quit
format> quit

Now you have the serial numbers of the disk that you just worked on
% newfs
% mount

Hope this helps... Now to playing with zfs
