Pocket door - Need hardware HELP


I just installed a pocket door in a new wall in my house.
The person where I got the hardware told me to get a standard door with the openings for the lockset already there. After hanging the door and putting all the sheetrock up, I realized that all the standard hardware for the pocket door will not fit on my door (opening is a circle further in, hardware is square and for the edge).
Does anyone have any suggestions? I need to have hardware on the door, but really don't want to have to replace the door itself or tear off all that sheetrock.
What can I do so that it doesn't look tacky and still works???
Thanks!

A pocket door has a different hardware set than other doors. No round hole in the face but a smaller notch on the end. The handle is a finger pull on the door edge not the face. You need a door slab. This has not cuts on it. But you can change the door without removing all the sheetrock. If you followed the directions to install you just need to remove the trim screws holding the outside head trim. Then just pick the door up off the track and replace it with the new slab. Locate your directions.. it will be there.

Try this site. This is where I got my hardware but I had to have my doors custom made.

As Bob stated (folding edge-side door pull hardware) - this is also the type of hardware that we install on pocket doors (No door knob, No hole-bored = door slab/leaf)
