Hi random14,
I would suggest that you recheck your internal cabling.
Did you allow setup to create a partition first?  If not, restart the setup process and create a partition and format it either FAT32 or NTFS...

Here's some great links for installing XP:

Do also verify if the hard disk is being detected by the system BIOS as well.
