ok the reason i wasnt to be careful is that im building a system for the first time and i didnt think id need another floppy for the new on, so every time i want to use the floppy i have to take it out of the old pc and install it in the new one. is there anything else i should know before i switch over?

thanks again for all the help

To update BIOS:
1. Download new BIOS data from http://www.biostar-usa.com/mbdownloads.asp?model=k8nha+pro (as mentioned by sirbounty). ftp://ftp.biostar-usa.com/bios/K8NHA PRO/NHA0319.BFP is a good choice :)
2. Read the instructions how to update bios http://www.biostar-usa.com/bioshelp.asp
3. Copy downloaded BIOS file to floppy disk, reboot computer, enter BIOS, write down any necessary information (after update most values will be reset to default); select 'Upgrade BIOS'.

BTW, make sure, that SATA controler is enabled in BIOS (it looks like you have only PATA enabled). Also, have you connected power to your HDD? You need 2 cables - one for data and one for power.
