    Mandrake 9.1. DISK/SCSI problem

    Hey im new to and fairly new to linux
    i recovered my dads Mandrake 9.1 verison of linux is office in a filling cabinet in the closet he never uses.

    Right now im running Windows XP home
    Pentium(R) 4 CPU
    3.00 GHz
    512mb ram

    basically the problem is in the "licence" part of the installation

    It says. Which DISK/SCSI driver should i try
    then i has a long list of these random names.

    First of all whats a DISK/SCSI driver?

    i choose a random one and it says it has found the DISK/SCSI i choose and it says do i have another. i select no.

    then it says "Do you have any DISK/SCSI interfaces?
    so i choose the same random one as i did before and it says it has found it and it asks if i have another one.

    i select no and then it says

    An Error Occurred
    An Error Occurred - no valid devices on which to create a new file systems please check your hardware for problem.

    I read somthing before about linux not recognising large hard drives. i currently have an 80GB hard drive and obviously im trying to dual boot windows and linux.

    Has anoyne had this problem before?
    can anyone help me. im so keen to use linux. im getting a bit sick of Windows.
