df -k
Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3             18880420  10461236   7460104  59% /
/dev/hda1               101089     13889     81981  15% /boot
none                    321708         0    321708   0% /dev/shm

fdisk -l /dev/hda
Disk /dev/hda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 2434 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
   /dev/hda1   *         1        13    104391   83  Linux
   /dev/hda2            14        46    265072+  82  Linux swap
   /dev/hda3            47      2434  19181610   83  Linux
   
after  adding my ide disk

fdisk -l /dev/hda ==>nothing change

fdisk -l /dev/hdc
[root@e-smith2 script]# fdisk  -l /dev/hdc

Disk /dev/hdc: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 1048 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hdc1   *         1         2     16033+  83  Linux
/dev/hdc2             3      1048   8401995    5  Extended
/dev/hdc5             3        35    265041   82  Linux swap
/dev/hdc6            36      1048   8136891   83  Linux
and
df -k
Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hdc6             18880420   9705596   8215744  55% /
/dev/hda1               101089     13889     81981  15% /boot
none                    321708         0    321708   0% /dev/shm

Why  in my df -k /dev/hda3 become /dev/hdc6?
My   hdc  disk is 8Go and /dev/hdc6 is 18Go.

thank you  for helping

You have duplicate file system labels on the two disks, and linux is confused. Either change the labels on your hdc and then reboot, or delete the partitions on /dev/hdc and create new ones.

Google for e2fslabel.
