I can't remmember how a Serial Connects to the Computer? I know its different to a SCSI; but I can't remmember the difference to a IDE?

I think you would need an IDE controller to take a Serial. So if you have one, you would be better off with a serial. If not, a standard IDE would do fine.
I think your friend is looking to take the faster drive!
