I just got a ATA100 40GB harddrive, I am planning to install it on a Abit BH6 motherboard. Can someone tell me something about what will I encounter after installing it. Does the board support ATA100, how big of a harddrive can this board read, and how much memory can I put in it. If the board doesn't support ATA100, Can I buy a IDE card that will support the ATA100, so that it will make this board better. And I already fill up all of the IDE channel (all 4), I need to buy a IDE controller card anyway, can someone tell me something about it. Price, and what to look for.

Thank You

If you goto <A HREF="http://www.abit-usa.com/" target="_new">Abit's</A> website and you will get and answer for most of your questions there by selecting the model of motherboard.

As for the ATA100 card they can usually run arround $50 US for a good one! I would go with anything that has a Promise Chipset.
