I'm hoping that since my (old) external HDD was detected, that my new (2TB) external HDD will also be detected.

What puzzles me is why the Debian LiveDVD only found one of my internal HDDs, my c/ drive.

How do I get Linux to see my other internal HDD?

All my HDDs are formatted NTFS. The new drive hasn't been formatted (yet). I need it to be read by Windows XP and by Linux.
How should I format it? I want to take advantage of all the space on it I can.

Open and run gparted, it will show all drives and any issues.. Windows won't see any linux or mac partition, without running a special (usually non-free) piece of software, wheras linux will see windows partitions...
