You have given us NO CLUE what hardware you have but I am CERTAIN that you DO NOT have BIOS support for large HDDs.

Simplest, surest, quickest, safest way to get large HDD support is to get an ATA/66 expansion card - it will support four ADDITIONAL IDE devices and HDDs up to about 128GB. ATA/100 or ATA/133 will work too, but cost more and don't deliver much, IF ANY, more performance.

Good Luck,
