Default Installing a new hard drive

I would like to install another SATA hard drive, but I need to know if I could use the new drive as a slave drive without having to RAID my new one with the old one. I currently have a 7200 SATA 80 GB Western Digital hard drive and a Asus K8V SE Deluxe Via K8T800 motherboard. I would greatly appreciate any help.

If you are going to be using just one drive attached to the SATA 1 controller or a drive on both SATA controllers (no raid) then there is no need to enter the SATA bios, it should recognize your hard drives when you boot up. You may hit F4 when you see the option upon boot just to take a look that both your drives are seen by the silicon SATA bios, but itÂ’s not necessary.

i got that from a post on setting up an SATA harddrive that microbell listed here a while ago, im sure he'll be pleased it was used
