Installing New HD in HP Pavilion laptop

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Trying to install a new HD in this computer. When I attempted to use the XP
set up disk it did not recognize the new drive.

Apparently I need to install drivers on the new HD. This computer comes with
a software and drivers disc but I don't know how to get it loaded.

The comp has only a CD drive. During setup when it prompted me to hit F6 to
install drivers I then installed the other disk but that doesn't work.

Bottom line I need help in figuring out how to go about installing a driver
on the new one. By the way the new drive is a Western Digital. Their site
wasn't very helpful. It just noted that I need to install the drivers but
not how to get that done.
