If the latest BIOS update doesn't let you see all of the large drive, the motherboard may be too old.  In this case, an add-on PCI IDE card should do the trick: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=16-102-002&depa=1

if purchasing a ide controller card is not an option, then you could consider an overlay program such as ez-bios, usually bundled with new hard drives. the program can also be downloaded from most hd maker's sites
