Hey, I have just done the required cabling for my 1TB WD harddisk. I can not find it in BIOS? My system is XP and motherboard is ASUS, Can anyone help me?

model of mobo ?
is this the only sata drive?
have you checked the cable is securely fitted?
try turning the sata cable around. i know its clutching at straws for that one but i had a similar issue, when i turned the data cable around it worked.
tried the drive on another sata channel.
try it on your boot drive channel to see if its picked up.
