    usually this would cover it:

    mke2fs /dev/hdb2 (where hdb2 is your 2nd )

    mount /dev/hda2 /newdir (where newdir is the directory where you want to mount it to)

    now to my question...

    are you trying to mount a new disk or trying to create a new partition on a current disk?

    Install what? A mount point?

    First create a mount point by creating a directory of what you want
    this mount to be called.

    mkdir mynewmountpoint


    then mount as ujr described
