Cannot access ATA-100 drives after installing Win2kpro

I have win2kpro with SP3 installed on a 4G SCSI drive. My ATA-100 drives (10G and 60G) are recognized by the BIOS but not seen in windows explorer of Win2k.  The ATA drives are FAT32 and the SCSI drive is NTFS.  The Motherboard is Intel SE440BX2 and the ATA-100 controller (I believe) is Intel 82371AB/EB PCI Master Bus controller.
In device manager under driver details, Win2k has selected atapi.sys, intelide.sys and pciidex.sys.  I have tried to change the driver, but Win2k will not change it.
Is there anything that I can do to get Win2k to recognize the drives, or do I need to purchase another controller?

Did you go into Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) to see if the drives are properly detected in the system?  You can assign drive letters there also.

You may need to "Import Foreign Disk" to get them to recognize also...

    Is your 10Gig ATA-66? Putting ATA-33 and ATA-66 drives on the same cable is not a good idea.

Thanks for the quick responses.  I found that there was an issue with a driver for a "raid" controller.  Once I found and reinstalled that driver, I could then see the drives in Win2k.

Ahh...well that would have helped to mention a RAID controller.  Glad you resolved your problem.  Since we were unable to help you fix it, please post a 0 point question in the Community Support TA (http://www.experts-exchange.com/commspt/) and ask them to reduce the points in this question to 0 and move it to the PAQ (Previously Answered Questions).  You won't lose any points, and the knowledge in this article will be archived.  Or you can choose a comment from above and award points anyway (or post a question in Community Support to have the points split as you see fit).

Thanks!
