    it depends on the format of the drive etc.....

    try "man mount" in terminal it might be able to point you in the right direction

    if its been setup in /etc/fstab you can just use

    Code:
    mount -a
    to automatically remount it.

    If it was just a manual mount, you would just type

    Code:
    mount /dev/sdb1 path/to/folder
    Obvioulsy changing the name of the partition, and the location
