Default What the????

I ended up putting a new computer together and I know when you first boot it up you have to put the OS first in which I did but since its a SATA hard drive I have to make a floppy to boot it up. Well when I start up with the OS it asks me to press f6 if I want to make a raid disc etc etc so I did and then it says its Mass Hardrive cannot be found or something like that and then it gives me two options.

1) Either to press S and to look for a specific drive and it asks me to put the manufactured floppy disc inside in which I dont have one. that doesnt work.

2) The other option is to just continue but when I continue and click start a new fresh copy of windows XP, it says the HD cannot be found, check if I plugged it in correctly which I did.

I know its because I have to create the bootable floppy but it wont let me (option 1). Sorry if I didnt explain it to good but im at my old comp and urging to use the new one .... id really appreciate it if you can help me out.
