Install Probs Hardware

My work gave me an old Dell Optiplex P133. I took it home and cracked the case, expecting to install an old 5gig IDE drive I have laying around. Instead, to my surprise, there was a 1 gig SCSI drive! I cannot get Redhat to find the disk. No media to install to or something like that is the error. I tried yanking the SCSI drive and card and installing my 5gig IDE drive in each one of the IDE slots to no avail. I would prefer to get rid of the SCSI completely and have my IDE running on there but I'm open to suggestions.

Also, I didn't mention that I cannot install to the SCSI either.
