Hi Gregory,

This is interesting. What version of Ubuntu did you try? Were you
using the live CD installer? If so, raising a bug and including the
details of your Seagate drive would help ensure it was detected in
future. Looking in the System menu, Administration sub-menu and
clicking the Disks item should open a utility that will show what hard
disks Ubuntu has identified.

Some more details about exactly what you did, and in what order, might
help us to help you out.
