Setup cannot access this disk

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.
