Trouble with drop frame in FCP

I shot a project in 24p on my Canon XL-2 and I logged it yesterday. I am setting up a timeline for it and set it to a DV NTSC 23.98fps and when I try to capture it sends me a warning that I am about to capture a non drop-frame media to a drop-frame clip.

How do I fix this?

Joseph,

Just to release some of your anxiety, a drop/non-drop problem won't really cause you any grief in your actual editing of the material.

Drop/Non-drop timecode variations are just a frame NUMBERING convention that allows timecode readout to sync up with clock time over LONG periods (like TV station programming over a 24 hour period - the circumstance it was developed to address)

It doesn't affect that actual quantity or timing of the actual frames moving through your system - just the TC display numbers assigned to them.

Just ignore it and go ahead and edit.
