No unfortunately its a floppy disk port(34 pin) should be marked FDD.
Seems you have plenty of sata ports (this is good)
A Few Suggestions:
1.you can change the lead for the cd/dvd to a multi 3 or 4 connector.HDD will still be slave.
This may slow dvd read write to system somewhat.
2.Purchase an ide PCI card to enable extra ide connections.
This would be more efficient,you could also remove slave DVD and attach it as master via ide PCI card.
3. Purchase an external usb2.0 hard drive Case to mount HDD Use via usb.
