    I have 2 SATA drives already set up as RAID-0 (on the lower SATA board connectors) and I wanted to have a simple, small (20GB) IDE drive installed. When I tried adding the drive (using the blue connector on the side of the board near the memory), no matter how I set the drive (Master, Slave, whatever), the system wouldn't boot properly. If it was Master, the system would complain there's no operating system to boot from and if it was Slave it would complain about there being no Master. How do I simply add this extra drive to the system so it's viewed as totally auxilliary?
