I have G3 Lombard that will boot with iBook restore software; however, the computer does not recognize the hard drive. I have even tried a different hard drive that I know has an operating system; however, the hard drive is still not being recognized.

The Apple System Profiler does not show the hard drive under Devices and Volumes. Apparently this computer has been configured to work with a Network Disk only.

What can I do to cause the hard drive to be recognized?
QUOTE Thanks

Have you tried formatting the hard drive using disk utility on the restore disk? (this will erase the disk, so be sure to back it up first)
