    I've used FDISK setting up hard drives preparing for an XP install many, many times! Of course, on newer systems, using the FDISK or FORMAT DOS commands is completely unnecessary. All disk preparations are performed by the XP install. At this point, kane702 needs to try another hard drive, or stick with Windows 98SE or Windows 2000 on this system

    I got it all up and running! Thank you guys so much for the help! I couldn't have done it without you!

    I don't know exactly what was wrong but I switched the HDs and cables and reformated them both and it worked.
