How do i mount my hd? I looked into /etc/fstab and there's only firmware and portage there so i guess mounting won't work, i need to add my hd to fstab first?

Your hard disk does not have to be listed in fstab to be mounted. I'd first list the detected hard disks using fdisk -l and then try to mount them using

mount /dev/<hard-disk-id> /mount/point

Both require root privileges so switch over to root using su root and then issue those commands
