Question controler cards

Hi I read something about some kind of PCI card that will let me install a larger hard drive than mother board is set up for. I never heard of such a thing, can anyone fill me in on these cards? What I want to do is use a 17.2 GB seagate on a PC that is limited to about 10GB, also board is only good for ULTRA DMA/33 and seagate drive is DMA/66. I have seen some cards on Ebay but have no idea what I am looking at. TomW

Hi, with a bunch of messing around with a download from seagate I got the 17.2 hard drive to work. Tom W
