My dual 1 Gig machine has room to easily mount a second (slave) ide
drive. I also have an Sonnet ATA-100 pci card and another IDE drive.
I would like to add both. The Sonnet card can support up to 4 IDE
Would it be better (performancewize) to:
A. Hook both drives up the the ATA-100 pci card using two ribbon cables
with both being masters?
B. Hook only 1 to the ATA-100 (a master) and use the second as slave
off the the included IDE card?
C. Hook both to one ATA-100 card using one as master and one as slave.
Any guidance here would be greatly appreciated.
