You don't connect HD's to the CPU. You connect em via an IDE cable that then goes to the motherboard.

PS2 as in playstation 2? Does it even have the same connectors as a normal HD, because the only system I know of having a regular PC HD is Xbox in which it requires a little effort to make it compatible in your computer.

Those PS2 HD's use a different interface than the IDE connection. Maybe you can find an adapter if they make one.
