I think the drive crashed in my Mac.  the OS wouldnt load up.  When I put the Cd in to reinstall the OS, the drive doesn't show up at all.  No drive is there to select.  I bought a new 80GB IDE drive and put it in as master, this drive still doesnt show up when I go through the OS install.   Do Mac's use regular IDE drives?  I also tried new IDE cable with same results.
