Help with hard drive/ windows install please.

I have recently had problems with my hdd which are covered in a previous thread, and am now trying to reinstall windows on a newr drive that was originally a slave.

I have set the jumpers ok so that it is now the master and disconnected the old drive. The bios has autodetected it as a 40gb hdd which is right.

It did't have an operating system on it previously as it was just used for additional storage do I installed dos, fdisked and formatted and reinstalled windows, but it only recognised the hdd as a 2bg drive.

I have searched the treads and it seems that i did not enable large disk support somewhere, but i dont remember seeing this option.

Is there a step by step guide to follow somewhere or has anyone some advice please.

I now have a working home pc with a 40gb hdd, although win xp will not recognise my broadband cable modem so I'll probably settle for Win me again.

Now I have to start reinstalling everything.

Thanks again.
