    would system drive be faster connected to the onboard raid controller
    as opposed to the IDE 1 connector assuming both are running at ata
    100/ dma 5 ? or would it be the same? just a dumb question...

    Unless you're running a multiple drive RAID array, there will be no speed

    On my old ABIT KT7 RAID board, the RAID controller was a lot faster in
    pure DOS mode running HDD backup apps like Ghost, Drive Image, but in
    Win98 was the same.
