Wow, thank you for the speedy reply colinjones.
Technically speaking I have 8 terabyte drives in a hardware raid 6 configuration. (see my other poste here: http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=6145.0 )
My raid card then carves the single raid disk into several 1 terabyte luns, which are in turn presented to the operating system as individual drives. I do this because when I have it as a single 6 TB drive, the OS has all kinds of issues. If I install Kubuntu, I can mount all the drives, partition, and format them... however, I am unsure of what steps I should do to get Linux MCE to see them.
I have tried partitioning and formatting them within Kubuntu and then installing LinuxMCE. That didn't work.
So how should I go about making these drives avaialbe to Linux MCE? What is the standard way of adding additional drives?
