Ubuntu doesn't like my 10GB drive?

I tried to install ubuntu 7.10 about a dosen times and am coming up with some weird errors. When I had my AGP video card in, it would get part way through the process and then give me a text line. It looked like DOS, sans the familiar commands.

When I got rid of that it was able to boot to the live CD protion but the hard drive I was using was not recognized by ubuntu. Bios saw it fine but Ubuntu couldn't even see it in Partition Manager.

To ensure that it was not simply because of the file system being strange, I formatted the drive in NTFS, FAT32 and RAW (unformatted) and none of those formats were detected by ubuntu either.

Any ideas? Or should I switch back to Open_32XP?

That Open32 item is pirate's gold so we can't discuss it.
