The first thing that springs to mind is that the HDD might not be connected properly - is it detected by the BIOS? Sorry if this is too elementary but hit the Delete key as your system boots and have a look in the relevant BIOS section to see if your HDD is there. Is it the only HDD on the system or is it a second HDD?
Good luck!

120GB? I dream of 120GB!!

How exactly are you installing SuSE? I did the same thing with XP and PM 7 (ish) on a laptop the other day (errr...weeks months ago!) - sorry to ask such an elementary question. It's just the way my mind works. I'd hate to miss the obvious - even thought the obvious is never obvious really.

Sorry I can't help much, but as Esteeven said above, it's mostly a hardware problem. I bought SuSE 8.2 and installed it on both my computers. Detection went quite smoothly, although sometimes you do have to tell SuSE about your hardware.
