If you first have to figure out the dive itself, use fdisk to get a list of connected and found drives at the console prompt:
fdisk -l

Assuming, the drive you'd like to mount is /dev/sdb1, use the following command, to mount it manually:
mount -t type /dev/sdb1 /mnt/hp_storage

If the destination, in this case /mnt/hp_storage, does not exist, you have to create it first, before mounting the drive.

type is the partition type, e.g. ntfs, ext2, ext3, ext4 or whatever.
On ntfs, you might have to give the type ntfs-3g to mount the drive.

For more informations on the mount command, use
man mount
