Seagate HD Problem

  gcha2 18:01 20 Nov 2005

I have recently acquired a Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 drive Model No st380011A which I am trying to install it as a second drive on a PC running WIN 98SE. The drive is recognised correctly by the BIOS and shows as a Generic Drive Type 47 in Device Manager but does not show in My Computer as Drive D.
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your help - I now have a working drive. I was not aware that the drive - an OEM version - had been formatted as a single NTFS partition which seems to have been the problem
