Default problems with new build computer

hi guys,
I really got it. I could do it. But there are some problems:

On start up after the asus mobo page the com scan for devices.
After detection it writes a warning:
Warning! An Ultra ATA 66 ( or faster ) drive is connected with a 40-pin IDE cable on a secondary channel. Drive speed is downgraded to Ultra ATA 33 mode. ( I tried to change the cable but the same problem)
What's the problem?
Second main problem that I can't start up without having the win xp pro cd in the boot drive. After the scanning and warning it writes then: found bootable disk on drive 2. After press any key to boot from the cd.... the system starts up. If the cd isn't in it tells missing NTDRL (?) File press any key to restart the system.
Thanks for any help.
Asus P5LD2
Pentium 4 630 3.0 Gigs
win xp pro sp 2
hdd 80 GB Seagate

Well for the boot broblem, in the BIOS, go to boot setup, and make the primary boot device ur HD. I i dont think youve changed that around. As for ur HD problem, im not really, sure, but try to attach the drive to the other IDE slot, if there is one.

You have an old IDE cable installed on the Hard drive. Use a new one.

short answer:
Thank you.After changing the IDE cable the warning disappeared.
Also after changing the boot to harddisk the OS starts up.
So again thanks a lot.
