Hard Drive not seen on Mandrake 10 Help


Hello All,

I had Mandrake 10 installed on my machine, no dual boot only Mandrake. I am having a problem, yes it crashed, long story, reinstalling it. My install keeps coming up with found imm, ppa do you have any other drivers?
I have gathered it is looking for a hd config but I don't know how to go about it giving the install the info. I have gone to the page that what ever I picked failed and it there any other config I want to manually put in. That is where I get lost.
Anybody have any Ideas?

What kind of disk is it? ATA, USB, something different?

Thanks for the reply.

It is a Maxtor 80 Gig IDE. It is on a 100 IDE port but does not have an 80 pin cable to allow the speed. When I installed Linux before on this machine it went fine. I reinstalled LInux on another machine and let Linux to the erasing and configuring and things went fine. Should I try that on this other machine that I am having problems with?

Hmm... Does you BIOS see the disk? If it does, Mandrake should do the same.
There may be one thing - if the disk has partitions on it, Mandrake may 'look' as if it wouldn't see the disk. Do you get to the stage you can choose partitioning type? I don't remember the one you're mentioning.

I believe the bios sees the disk. I did partition it myself, I think that was the oopps. It is no asking for any other devices, aside from imm, ppa and I get a list of hd configs and none seem to work at this point.
