: I need drivers that allow my p55c-200 motherboard to see my new 20 gig hard drive. Can I get any help


Your BIOS is limiting the HDD size that you can use, not any drivers.

You have several options:
1. Update the BIOS, IF there is an update that provides larger HDD support. Identify your mainboard maker, model and version (if you don't know it already) then look for BIOS upate at maker's web site. Learn how about corrupt bios recovery before you try to "update" your BIOS.
2. Use an ATA/66 PCI interface to your HDD (usually support up to 128GB).
3. Get aboveboard hardware BIOS extension from Unicore or Microfirmware
4. Get a custom BIOS update from Unicore (fairly expensive)
5. Least desirable is to use a drive overlay program like EZ-BIOS or Data Manager (DO NOT ALWAYS coexist with your BIOS). Check HDD maker's web site.
