    I'm building a new system on a A7N8X Deluxe. I 'll have only one hd which is
    SATA. Are there any issues I need to be aware of when installing the OS?
    (Win XP Pro). Also would I set my DVD burner (my only optical drive) as
    Secondary Master?
    I've done this before but not often enough to be an expert:))
    Thx for any info and advice.

    You'll need to have SATA drivers avail at beginning of install. Also, you
    can set your op drive on the PRI-IDE channel if you want. (The SATA drive
    is on a separate controller...and does not bother with the old MASTER/SLAVE
    or PRI/SEC issues.)
