If you are trying to install XP on (what i assume to be) a new computer, your XP install CD does not have the SATAcontroller drivers built in.

you need to go to the vendors homepage and see if there are drivers available for the controller for XP. sometimes in the cases where the computer comes with Vista there will not be any xp controller drivers available at all.

Cannot boot from any device

The hard disk maybe faulty.
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

I just installed 2 gigs of RAM into my Thinkpad T60p and the BIOS does not see it. Yikes! what can be wrong. It seems to be located correctly.

One of the RAM module may be incompatible. Are both RAM modules the same type and make?
Try inserting 1Gb RAM module at a time to see if the BIOS can see the RAM.

Red Green stripes on IBM Thnikpad T60p tft monitor

Those are dead pixels if you want to get rid of them you will probably need to replace the monitor. They will probably charge you an arm and a leg to replace it so you might get a second quote from Computer repair shop.
