Default SATA drive not being recognized

I just installed a new 320 sata hdd and though it is recognized in the bios, when windows starts up in is not on the list of hard disk drives. I was reading were you have to install the driver with a floppy using the windows XP installation disk. If this is, true is there any way to do it with out the floppy cause i dont have one.

That's because you have to activate the drive. Right click on "My Computer" and click manage. Then find the drive and you should be able to activate it from there.
