Default Will this motherboard work? No IDE connector

Hello -

On an earlier post, I asked for help deciding how to resolve an incompatibility issue with the motherboard I had purchased and the processor. One of the suggestions was to buy the Foxconn G43MX-K LGA 775 Intel 643 Micro ATX Intel motherboard.

This board looks good. However, it appears that there is no IDE connector. I have a Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 Hard Drive (640 GB, SATA)
I would like to install XP Home (Service Pack 2) on this hard drive. I read somewhere that I need drivers to do this. Does anybody know where I could find these drivers if I bought this board. Does this board accept 45nm CPU's, and is my CPU still usable. (I had previously inserted it in to an incompatible PC Chips motherboard.) Does this board support 667 MHz DDR2 RAM, and 800 MHz DDR2 RAM (240 Pin)? Any other advice with this build? I think the board will do, however, I am a little concerned with the lack of an IDE connector.

Thank You
