Hmm they're both SATA drives set as masters.  I tried some more today 
and i'm still unable to do it.  There seems no way to make it recognize 
it.  It would SEEM that it doesn't recognize the drive when the cd 
begins its setup.  I'm not 100% sure on that....although i know for 
sure its in the BIOS and working properly and fine.  Its already set up 
with a partition in fat 32....anyone have some ideas?
