Did you remember to partition and format the drive? If not, you need to
do this. You can do it from within Administrative Tools>Computer
Management>Disk Management if it appears there. If it doesn't appear in
that part of Vista, partition and format it with either a utility from
the drive mftr. or even a Win98 boot disk using fdisk and then format.

If this doesn't apply to your situation, please post back with more details.
