big IBM harddisk


I purchased a new 40 G IBM harddisk.

My box is an old 100 MHz Pentium, with slot 5.  

The problem is that the motherboard doesn't understand the harddisk at

The IBM own (DOS) program, which is supposed to help to fix the problem
doesn't help. Even if I boot the box using that IBM setfix program, the
motherboard doesn't find the new harddisk at all. 

My system is Debian 'Potato'. 

Anybody knows, what to do?
