Just to be sure I'll add this to COs comment...
Make sure you use a 80-wire IDE cable to connect the drive if your motherboard supports the faster IDE speeds (ATA100/ATA133)
Also, you did let win2k run the full drive scan didn't you. If you didn't, you should. If you did, try another program to check your harddrive.

Quality and features for the price, yes the A7N8X-X is a great board.  Snowguy's right on that.

I also really like the the A7V8X, which is even less money and supports the cpu fine.  Asus has a great reputation for reliability, even if their boards do cost a little more.

Regardless of what you look at, I have to specifically recommend AGAINST the following:  PC Chips, Matsonic and ECS (Elitegroup computer systems).  Stay away from those three.  These are extremely inexpensive products, all made by ECS, and have the highest failure / problem rate in the industry.

Abit used to be very high quality, but it seems to have dropped off lately.  I'm still very happy with Soltek, GigaByte, and one company very few peope know of yet - Albatron.  They're making some remarkably good budget boards.

You should ask a question at community support to let my points be transferred to Snowguy. It was my fault to post here in the first place.
