IF there is not important data on it you will want to format it . Boot from floppy with fdisk and format and use fdisk to remove all partition and create new one and make it active then formatit .

You said that you can not see HDD even if you boot from floppy, that means that you have another problem with this HDD and not only sys. commander problem .
I am sure of that because try to install sys. commander in another HDD (working well) and boot from floppy and you will see that you can see it .
I suppose that your based problem with the HDD itself , with partition , setup defination , hardware ......etc .
Finally make sure that the floppy you are boot from is clean from viruses . GOOD LUCKE .

Boot from a floppy to a command prompt.  Make sure you have a copy of fdisk on that floppy.  From the command prompt type FDISK /MBR
That will disable the System Nazi from booting automatically.

Hope this helps.

Sorry, a failed attempt at humor.
By nazi I meant the System *Commander* that forces itself into control over the disk access...

Anyhow...

Glad I could help,
