Can anyone offer some next steps/advice?

I'm running Windows XP.

I installed a Western 100 Gig hard drive (OK I was tired of running out of space and it was on sale).

I went to the Storage - Disk Management section where this Wizard was supposed to come up and walk me through the questions. Nope. It just shows I have a 32 Gig hard drive ...

I entered CMOS Setup and selected autodetect IDE devices. Nothing changed.

Now I am at a loss. I have lots of space and normally I could live with that but it doesn't seem right some how.

So ... do I pull it out and try again? Reformat the the drive (nothing on it)? or is there another option?

Can you/anyone offer some advice on next steps?
