Go figure, so Stupid!!!!

Anyway thanks!

Don't know about FC3, but the first Fedora release you needed to format your SATA drive first before Fedora would recognize it. Since I was, and still am, running a dual boot Linux/Win2k machine, it was no problem to format it using Windows back then, which the gentleman you are replying to apparently has done, as he appears to be replacing or trying to replace WinXP with Linux. You may need to use something else to format it if you don't have access to a Win box to do it with. There are a variety of tools out there to do that. How many are free I don't know.
