I have two hard disks in my computer. One is 500 GB, the other 1 TB. I have Win XP and Suse Linux ver 10.3 installed on the 500 GB disk. No problem.

I can access the Windows partition of that 500 GB disk from Linux. No problem.

The hardware setup in Linux says the other disk exists. But won't list it as a mountable drive or access it or files on it.

My question: how do I access the second hard disk? Is it too large for Linux to mount? Is there a workaround? Or is it something else causing it? I did add the 1 TB disk after Linux was installed. Would this affect it?

Your second disk a windows dynamic disk (LDM). You will need to download the LDM utilities

I followed the link, and the updated link, and downloaded the archived package. I didn't like the "You must know what you are doing to use this" message in the readme but will attempt to muddle my way through.

Thank you for the direction to work on.
