You should delete the other question you have double-posted here.
Now, you need to run FDISK and then FORMAT on your drive.
If you need more just ask.

is this the hard drive you want to boot from?  Or is it just a spare drive...
My friend jason has this same problem right now.  His computer is in my basement right now actually.  What "eeee" is having the trouble with is that fdisk DOES recognize that the drive is there, but it has no official title to list info from such as C:, E:, ect.

Also previous answers are no help because of the fact that you cannot do a task such as "format c:" because there is no "c:".  So u get an error.  The big problem is that we dont know how to set the computer to tell it that this drive it sees is "c:"  

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  --Bill
