Default How do I get SATA HD to work w/XP Pro?

I have a Serial ATA Western Digital 120 GB Hard drive with an 8mb cache. My bios (Phoenix Award) recognizes it in the RAID utility setup and when the system does the startup checks it also recognizes it as my primary drive. However when I try to instal Windows XP Pro, it loads everything in the beginning after hardware inspection but the when I choose "instal windows xp" it says that there is no hard drive connected. I figure this is because windows automatically wants an IDE but I don't know how to get it to recognize my SATA. BTW my jumper is set on the farthest over to the right for the HD, which is how it came, though i don't have a jumper reference to whether this is correct or not.
Does anyone know how to fix my problem?
