Default Hard drive connection question

I bought a seagate 80 gb sata hard drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16822148040
I want to hook it up to my MSI K8N Neo2 mobo:
It will be the only HD I will have hooked up. It doesnt have the ATA 133 cable hook up but a serial ATA hook up and I belive a ATA 150 hook up ( a male hook up) . The hard drive cables that came with my mobo are a ATA 133 cable (which wont work, it is like a 39 pin, 40 but 1 missing) and a serial ATA cable. Can I use the serial ata cable to use the HD or is it only for using 2 drives on raid?
