oooo the plot thickens. thanks for all the helpful info elbatrop.
one last question before i go home. my raid array consists of 2 maxtor 160 GB IDE drives. they use ata 133 i believe, 133 something anyways. they aren't SATA though so in my current setup i have one hard drive hooked up to an 'IDE to SATA adapter' running into one of my mobo's SATA hookups. the other hard drive in the array is running into the mobo's main IDE jack.
the reason for this is i can't hook BOTH up to IDE jacks since in a raid array each drive needs to be hooked up by itself (it was news to me at the time
) the other option would have been to hook both up to thier own SATA jack. i didn't have 2 adapters hehe.
anyways my question is, does this mobo have a secondary IDE jack that will accept an IDE hard drive for a raid array? or will i have to continue using my clunky ide to sata converter for one drive?
if that question was too confusing i can attempt to clarify
