The need to install a DOS driver for cd-rom drives has long gone thankfully, ever since DOS ceased to be a vital platform for Windows.
The two old hard drives you've tried so far may have failed and you can test them by making a bootable CD containing "Seagate SeaTools for DOS" from here:
It will test any brand of hard drive, not just Seagate ones.
The download is an ISO file, so you'll need to use "Nero Burning ROM" or something similar to make a CD from it.
Then boot the old PC from it.

Here is a link to an ISO image of the ultimate conglomeration of software tools available- the Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD)!
This has Seatools(the Hard drive tool you used earlier) as well as several other utilities to test components. It ALSO includes my favorite Memory testing utility- Memtest86+, it will be found under the "memory" menu after booting from the UBCD.
You will have to burn this file to the disc the same way you did seatools.
