Default ASUS BIOS settings regarding SATA

Hey in my bios there is a setting called "Enhanced Mode Support on" and the choices are SATA, PATA, or both. is anyone familiar with that setting? Please tell me what exactly it does and if it affects performance in any way. when i played with that setting it altered the order that my HDD and DVD drives appeared but i do not know if that is as deep as that setting goes. i only have 1 sata hdd and 2 pata dvd drives. whats the best reccomendation for that bios setting?
