When I try to install winXP I can get to the screen where you choose to create a partition, but in the window at the botom I see:

114471 MB Disk 0 at Id 0 on bus 0 atapi

<setup cannot access this disk.>
Unknown Disk

<There is no disk in this drive.>

I believe my hard drive is at fault but have no Idea how to fix the problem.

Enter you BIOS at POST. Find the tab or menu to enable PATA or IDE. Save and Exit. Boot to the installation disk again.
