Please help with Asus p5w dh

Hi, just finished my first build using Asus p5w dh, and everything went well except for 2 small problems:

1) I have 3 sata hard drives all inserted into the 3 ICH7R SATA connectors (none in RAID), and all 3 are detected in the bios and device manager, but when I go to "My Computer", I only see 1. How do I detect and use these drives?

2) My internet does not work - the lights on the back are on and blinking, but I get no IP address even if I repair. The internet service is fine because the same ethernet cable works fine in my laptop. The drivers are updated, but is there something else I am missing?

Thanks ahead of time - ironing out these minor frustrations would make things much better!

    you may need to install drivers.. check the CD that came with your motherboard and install all drivers.

    My isp has the MAC address of my network card registered to their servers. you may need to register the MAC address of your NIC as well.

    I hope this helps
