When you say the new drive was not recognised when set up in say position two, what did Disk Utility say about the drive as it may well need to be partitioned GUID and formatted Mac OS Extended (Journalled)?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
