I am planning to buy a PCI IDE controller to connect two more hard disk
drives (I already have two hard disk drives, a CD writer and a DVD ROM
connected to the motherboard's IDE controller).
Did anyone have this setup working before in Linux? Will there be any
problem in configuring this hardware and accessing the 5th and 6th IDE
devices under Linux?
Also, will the transfer rate be same as the hard disk drives that are
connected to the motherboard's IDE controller?
