    Sounds like the disk just isn't formatted. But based on your description, I'm not entirely sure what software you're using to set it up. If it's a brand new disk and he hasn't prepped it in any way, the normal procedure would be to boot the machine from System Disc 1 (one of the two discs that came with the machine). Then, start going through the OS X installer until the menu bar appears at the top of the screen. From the Utilities menu, you'll need to open Disk Utility, select the new disk and partition it.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
