How to install a SATA drive on an older MB?

I have an old A7N8X Deluxe motherboard currently with an IDE drive that I use for backup but I need to install a new SATA drive that will contain the OS. Can someone refresh my memory on how I get the pc to recognize the new drive and then how to get the bios set to boot to it first, etc. ?
I tried just plugging it in but it isn't showing up the list of available drives.
Thanks for any help.
