Adding a second hard drive and mount point(s) to an existing VM

Running vSphere 4. I have a VM (OS RHEL 5) that has one hard drive configured and pointing to a LUN named Data Store 2. I added a second hard drive and have it pointing to a different LUN.

Can someone let me know the command to use in RHEL 5 to get the OS to recognize the new hard drive? Secondly, I need change change the mount points within the OS from using the existing hard drive/data store to the new one.

These are using Hard Drive 1/Data Store 2 now and I need them to use Hard Drive 2/DB Data Store:

/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol11 108G 62G 41G 60% /db/live

/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol09 3.8G 2.0G 1.7G 56% /db/live/ai

/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol10 9.5G 2.0G 7.0G 22% /db/live/bi

Any guidance is appreciated.
