Either your stuff is outdated, or you just aren't knowing that. It's manually mounted.
The Disk manager (I don't remember the name) may do it. Although, it seems you need it mounted.
On some, like Suse, they mount it automatically, but on this one, you need to mount it.
usually, mount it as hda0 if it's the first drive or partition or hda1 if it's the slave drive or second partition. (Unless hda0 is already taken, then you would use hda1)
