Currently your root '/' and swap partitions have been defined, but no others. The last line in your fstab with "/dev/sdc1" can be commented out because you won't be able to plug in a usb stick or sd card if you don't
Now I'm not an expert here, but because you didn't setup your /home dir as a seperate partition you may have issues moving it to the 32 gig drive now. I would recommend either reinstalling and manually partitioning your system to have the root and swap on /dev/sda and your /home on /dev/sdb1. If you don't want to do that, then one alternative is to just use the drive as your storage drive by mounting it in your home directory. So to manually test it you would do the following:
sudo mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb1
this will create an ext3 filesystem on that 32gig drive
sudo mkdir -p /home/storage
this will create a dir to mount it under /home/storage
sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb1 /home/storage
this will mount it.
You may then want to make a symlink under your own dir to get to it more quickly....so for instance
ln -s /home/storage /home/'myusername'/storage
now if that all works fine you can save everything under you 'storage' folder and move all your music/video/documents folders into your storage folder.
If your happy with everything and want to make it permanent you can modify your fstab file with the following line - note: you MUST replace the UUID value with your own:
I have the 'file system" 4GB disk mounted as /
and no other physical disks are visible from the file browser.
however the larger disk appears to be at /home
- inside the other disk...
I'm still coming at this from a windows headspace so I could easily be missing something
swap is on the 16GB disk @2048MB but there is only 12GB total in my /home directory... odd.

sudo mkdir /mnt/disk2 sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb1 /mnt/disk2
This will get the disk back.
I am looking into getting home moved to this disk now, I will keep you updated.
Thank you. I am new to this forum, and this has helped me to "recover' my missing partition. Now I see the default "home" directory, "my documents" and other folders that had been created by the default Xandros distro.
I am using an Asus 1000 linux netbook with 40 gb capacity on the SDD [8 Gb + 32 Gb solid state drives]. I've now installed: first Easy Peasy, then eeebuntu, then back to Xandros, and once again eeebuntu. I could never figure out why I could not 'see' the second SDD drive after partitioning. It is now clear that the default installation of any of these distros is a 'safe' one, since it does not destroy the underlying (previous) data.
Perhaps you or some other member here could kindly recommend me a [color=#BF0040]manual partitioning scheme? [/color], Preferably one where eeebuntu would completely replace any previous installation, including deletion of previous user data]. Now I'd like to install the "standard" eeebuntu, since I prefer to have the default linux (gnome) desktop, rather than the netbook style. My attempts to get rid of the tabbed interface in Easy Peasy was unsuccessful.
