It looks like no partitions have been created on the 2nd and 3rd hard drives 
(hdb & hdc).  That can be done with parted (partition editor).  That should 
be done with root privilige.  Look at "man parted".  Parted would be run 
either in a root CLI (command line interface - equivalent of the Winblows 
"command prompt) or in a root terminal under X-windows.
