    My Gigabyte motherboard supports ata 100. My new Maxtor 160gig hard
    drive is ata 133. I understand that I cannot access the full drive
    till I get a ata 133 adapter card. But what other effect can I expect?
    I am unable to install MS Office. It hangs up, which never happened
    before. I also notice things running a little slow. Is this something
    that will be corrected by a ata 133 adapter card?
