    Since it's ME, try booting the system with a MS-DOS floppy, you can get a boot image at Bootdisk if you don't have one, and see if you can access the ME drive in DOS. I'd unplug all other hard disks during this process, that way there's no possibility of jumpering or cabling errors causing the problem.
