Check your cd drive is set to master and your bios is set to detect ide

Also while you are there check how many ide channels you have(perhaps 2 with
2 primary and 2 secondary). If you have 2 channels perhaps you could put the
drive onto the primary.

The plot thickens some more. I managed to get at the BIOS and the drive
is not recognised there. I checked most carefully to make sure that the
cable was properly seated and it seemed OK. Bearing in mind that it is
on the same cable as the CD drive could it be because I set the jumper
to slave or is it something more sinister. I think I will leave it for
tonight and start again in the morning.
