    Just a quick question. I have a SATA HD which is 80 Gigs. I'm kind of running out of space with that one, so I want to buy another one. My HD has Win2K installed and I want the second one just for extra storage (not for another OS). My question is: Can I just buy another SATA drive, and plug it in there? Will it be recognized by Windows just like it does with regular IDE's.

    yes, since you already have a SATA drivers installed, all you need to do is format it after installing the HD.

    So, you mean it will use the drivers I put when I installed Win2K?
