3.0GB/s is the data transfer speed, if your board has SATA ports it will run as SATAII is backward compatible, though it will run at SATA speeds i.e. 150GB/s

SATA only allows for one device on its cable, so there is no need for anything like master-slave or its jumpers. So, you just plug the SATA cable the device (along with power), and you're done. If you have two SATA HDs, then you'll have two cables.

mmmmmmmm, need to think on that one, I always thought the port on the m/board determined the master slave config

EDIT:

I knew I'd seen it for this board but it is refering to standard ide mode lol



Where are you in Aussie T-MAN? Qld here.
