it's a parallel ata instead of serial ATA, but yeah, don't really know what the point of saying that was.

Your hard drive will have to be a SATA drive obviously to work with a motherboard with SATA slots on it

The reason for saying that was, as you rightly point out...

However being an old HD it is unlikely to be SATA so if he has a PATA slot on his mobo then his old drive will be fine - most SATA motherboards have PATA slots on them.
