Are you sure that both IDE controllers on the motherboard are ATA 100 or better? I've seen several motherboards where the primary (first) ATA controller is ATA 100 and the second was ATA 33. The second one was intended for CD-ROM drives and the first for hard drives.

By plugging into the first controller, you could rule this out as others have suggested. Some maxtor drives require a jumper for ATA 100. I'm not sure about all seagates. I just put in an 80 gig seagate and it steped down to ATA 66 correctly in my iMac which shipped with a 10 gig.
