You are right.  I did install, and the hard drive is working fine.  Thank
you all for your advice and attention.

I still couldn't get it to install through the CD, (didn't pay to much
attention to the malfunctions of the CD when I was concentrating on the
HDD). It works sometimes and not others.  Maybe it's been dropped or
something.  anyway, I removed the HDD and put it in my desktop (as sda)
and installed Mint 9. Got a few odds and ends to clear up but it's working
well in the laptop now. Connected to wifi, and downloaded updates.
