    I want to connect my hard drive to the IDE 3 socket. I don't want to
    the use the Raid function, just the regular ATA/133 function. I'm
    trying to set this up on a mandrake linux system and I'm totally
    confused. Do i need the driver for the Promise FastTrack 100 card or
    the Promise Ultra 133 TX2 card? Or maybe a driver for just the 20276?
    The GA-8IEXP manual states that IDE 3 and IDE 4 are compatible with
    Ultra ATA/133 but the readme file that is part of the driver download
    package mentions a FastTrack driver.
    I need to know the proper driver because it looks like I will have to
    recompile the kernel or get a kernel patch, because I'm running
    Mandrake 10.0. That is another challenge for me because I'm still new
    to Linux.
