2007-9-2 cannot recognize my HDD!

I had installed previous version of arch linux, It worked well.
Several months before, I bought a SAMSUNG 80GB mobile hard driver, and I changed the hard driver with my laptop's hard driver, a TOSHIBA 40GB driver.
When I installed the 2007-8-2 version arch linux, 3 or more exception occured when detecting the SAMSUNG and TOSHIBA hard driver. I used the isolinux folder's vmlinuz and initrd.img files to install it, and the ISO files placed in my TOSHIBA mobile hard driver.
I can continued the installation, but when prepare the hard driver, I cannot fine any driver list in the installation programme.
What's wrong?
Thank you!
