Have you opening disk management in XP and seeing if the drive appears in there at all? Or partition magic if you have a copy.

I looked on Quantum.com for a driver or any kind of info. They have been bought out by Maxtor which stated I shouldn't need any type of driver for the Quantum Fireball lct10 30 GB HD.
Thanks for everyone's input.

During POST, when searching for IDE devices, the Quantum Fireball shows up. Somewhere, it stops being recognized.

I finally got the old HD to be recognized. Everything in the BIOS was enabled correctly. Under Device Manager, only the SATA drive array was recognized, but I also found an unrecognized Mass Storage Device. It was unrecognized because no driver had been added. I updated the driver by having it look automatically on the CD that came with my motherboard. It found a driver; it installed, and wallah..., now my old HD is recognized and readable. Pathetically simple.
My current set-up: XP is loaded on my 2 SATA drives in RAID 0 array. The optical drives are on the primary IDE, and the old HD is on the secondary IDE.
Thanks everyone for your help!
