Default EIDE Compatible?

Hi Everybody,
I am looking into buying a new DVD drive but the one i am looking at (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827152076) says that it has an EIDE/ATAPI interface. I have an MSI K8N Neo4-F motherboard and I need to figure out if my motherboard is compatible with this interface.

I'm not sure if this affects anything but I have two CD drives on the IDE cable I want to use. I want to keep one (IDE) CD drive and use the DVD drive, Will it work using the same cable?

Also, I just saw this drive on Newegg's daily deals. It looks a lot better for only $6 more. / ?

EDIT: Yep, I'm goin with the LITE-ON (not that it makes any difference as far as compatibility goes seeing as they have the same interface)
