So, I assume you will just use these straight, with no raid. Should be a piece of cake, mostly. My brother's board had two sets of sata sockets. Each set was controled by a different manufacturer's controller, which wasn't explained. I couldn't get one manufacturer's drives to boot from the Via, primary controlled socket set, but finallly got them to boot with the second set, which was controlled by Fastrak. Then I put the second set, another manufacturer on the via set and nothing would boot, until I turned off the boot for them in the bios. If you have trouble, I recommend you only start with the main drive and get it all loaded with xp before putting the second drive in. This will help sort things out.
Darn, I was going to go kayaking before the rain starts this evening, but too late. It's starting to drizzle.

If those are IDE type hard drives, everything will be similar to what you are used to. :O) If they are sata drives, things will be a bit different. Bob Noble
