Abit KT7A-Raid Motherboard Question re: RAID

Hi there. Am running the above board in my system and am using both IDE1 and 2 for 2 hard-drives and a CDRW and DVD drive respectively. I am wanting to plug another couple of hard drives into my system and have read the manuals for the motherboard but still can't determine if IDE3 and IDE 4 (reserved for RAID functions) are able to be used as additional normal IDE connectors meaning I can have upto 8 IDE devices in my system.

Does anyone else have this kind of board and how are you using the extra IDE3 and 4 terminals? Does anyone know if they can be just used for normal IDE devices?

I don't really want to replace any HDD's as I already have a 40 and 60Gb unit in the machine but the drive's are filling up!

Thanks!
