Go into the BIOS and Disable the Floppy Drive. Without knowing what BIOS or anything we cant give exact directions where it would be located.

As for the Hard Drive, check Disk Management. Start>Right click on Computer (Or My Computer in XP) and select Manage. Then select Disk mangement. See if there is a drive letter assigned to the drive and what else it says about the 2nd hard drive.

The 2nd hard drive doesnt have a format supported by Windows. Unallocated mean RAW format which cant be used by Windows. You will have to right click on it and create a partition and format it to get it working.

Does that Error come up with Windows about the Floppy? If so try uninstalling it in the Device Manager.

Does the computer have a floppy drive physically in the case? From what you have said I assume not. As said you will have to disable the floppy controller (FDD controller) in the BIOS. It may be under "integrated peripherals". And yes if you can tell us what kind of BIOS you have we will be able to give you a more accurate description of what to do.
