Default BIOS Question about HDD

I have purchased a Seagate 250gb HDD. I have installed it in my Gateway P III computer (384MB Ram; 500 MHZ; I am running Windows XP Professional) but it is only recognizing it as a 128gb drive. I want to get the full functionality of this drive (that is the reason why I purchased it). I figure it has something to do with my BIOS version. Currently my bios version is a PheonixBios 4.0 Version 6.0.

Does anyone know if updating my BIOS will give me the full functionality of my new HDD?

Thanks in advance for your help.
