Default ATA 300 on ATA 100 board?

Will an ata 300 harddrive still work on a board that only supports ata 100? What I'm thinking is it will work but the speed just won't be met... as the board isn't capable of it. Am I right in assuming this?

It'll work, but at a lower speed.

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
