    Extra HD and VSL

    Hi everybody,

    A composer I work with is planning on purchasing the full VSL and I\'m retrofitting his computer for him.

    I\'m planning on getting him a 160 gig drive (7200 rpm) to go along with the two drives he already has. What I need to know is what PCI to IDE card I should get. (We need the card because there are no more IDE connections in his computer!) Has anybody had good results using a setup this way? Or is it a better idea to just get one bigger harddrive (200 gig?) for the samples and stick with two total HDs rather than three.

    Two IDE channels. About $36. Easy installation.

    Make sure you verify that the BIOS can handle drives over 128 MB in size. Many systems can\'t use the 160 and above drives.

    the bios would only be a problem with the internal (onboard) IDE-controller, but keep in mind, that W2K without any servicepacks will not recognize it, anyway the promise-driver or sp1 fixes that
