I'm not sure if Linux uses mount the same way BSD does, but you should run the "man mount" command to find out what you have to do.

I would recommend finding out which partition you need to mount on the drive. EG: /dev/hda, /dev/hdb, etc... But, each of those drives may have a partition you need to mount.

And, you will most likely need to mount the partition/HDD with a certain file system. Whether it be ntfs or fat32.

Like I mentioned before, "man mount" should give you all the information you need in order to run the "mount" command.
