if your hard disk is ata133 you need an ata133 controller card. a ATA66 will not do, your 200 or 250GB drive is at least ata100 if not ata133.

i assume by your lack of knowledge as to what kind of interface your disk is , it most likely is ATA100 or ATA133 EIDE.

as for where to get them, might want to actually read the link i gave you..... its not that hard if you just try.......

in case you can't be bothered to read the link, here is the product you want to buy. it will allow you up to ata133 so you can add those extra hard disks to your computer. $38 with free shipping:
