You will need to specify all DASDs in /etc/modprobe.conf (you should
have "options dasd_mod dasd=..." there) and regenerate the init ramdisk
You can actually put a offline DASD online in a running system as well:
chccwdev -e <nr>
where <nr> is the device number of the DASD you want to bring online.
After you did this you should be able to see it in /proc/partitions and
dmesg and so forth.
Hope that helps,
Thanks & regards, Phil
