The last time I saw your previous post I think we had got as far as determining that your motherboard has 2 SATA ports and 1 IDE port. A PCI card click here can provide a further 2 IDE ports or you can use a SATA to PATA (Parallel ATA) converter to run your IDE drive from one of the SATA ports click here.
