Hard disk installer cannot find my hard drive

I'm new to pfSense but I did do some searching on the topic before posting.
From what I can tell my chipset and its built in ide controller are supported (nforce2). I have an old 80gb IDE hardrive in the system, it is currently formatted to ext3.
When I go into the isntaller from the command line I go through the options up until "Install pfSense", I choose this option and get a message saying "The installer could not find any disks suitable for installation (IDE or SCSI) attached to this computer. …" I can then exit the installer, reboot the system or try to install again and get the same error message again.
I have tried rebooting the system and also booted up a linux live disk to make sure I could see the hard drive from there (it was visible and readable).
Any thoughts on how to fix this?

pfSense is based on FreeBSD. FreeBSD != Linux ;)
Try using the FreeBSD 6.2 installer ISO. That will tell you whether or not your hardware is supported.
