The 6GB worked perfectly, so it must have something to do with the drive

I'm starting to think this is an LBA issue...
When I boot, there is a black screen that the BIOS puts up, that lists
the hardware... On the part that lists the HD, it says LBA is turned
off, even though I have it set to "auto" in the BIOS... The BIOS
mentions that it will use LBA if the HD supports it *AND* if the drive
is formatted with LBA enabled... (?)
If I boot a set of debian floppies (RC1) the HD doesn't even show up...
If I use the RC1 CD, it does...
I'm tempted to try this:
boot: linux hda=XXX,YYY,ZZZ
My disk, as reported by "fdisk -l":
