I'm new here, and read about problems with installing SATA HD's in various setups: as only drive, as one of 2 SATA drives, etc.
My situation is this: have 2 Parallel/IDE HD's. Want to replace my smaller, 40GB primary (original) HD with a bigger, new SATA HD, and still keep my 200GB Slave Parallel HD where it is.
Will I run into problems? How does one set up a SATA drive anyway? What is RAID, and is it a must?
Just when I thought I knew enuff to build a few new PC's, in comes the world of SATA, and I haven't read enough "to the point" articles/posts.
Help is appreciated in advance
