In order to mount a hard drive we need to add an entry to the file /etc/fstab. This entry will allow us to not lose our drive mounting after a system reboot.
/dev/sdb1 /mypartition ext3 defaults 0 0
Then to action the changes run the following command,
root@server:/# mount -a
Finally check that the drive is now mounted.
root@server:/# df -h
