Default IDE controller

I got ANOTHER hard drive, putting me at 400GB, for free, so I had to get an IDE controller. Well I ordered it, hooked it up, turned on the PC, XP recognized it. I ran the drivers for it, all set. Restart, and the HDD isn't showing. I have tried re-doing it, and nothin works. Any suggestions?



the old system...
EVGA GeForce 6600GT
Enermax Whisper II 535W PSU
1.2 TB
1GB Ram
Chaintech VNF4 Ultra
