Installation question

I've installed a 431 in a Compaq 370, and seem to have a problem getting NT to recognize it. This will be the boot drive, so I tried F6'ing during the installation, but the floppy disk only shows 4 types of drives....If I let the installation continue, and try to install by the book, I get the 431 controller option off the same floppy, but it can't detect any drives to install NT. Any help?

9) At the next window, hit the UP arrow and select IDE CD-ROM
