    I have an Athlon XP Processor 1900+ with 512 PC2100 memory and am looking to
    buy an Abit motherboard to put them in. I have an old KT7A board running
    RAID and would like to move the hard drives over to this new board. Can ATA
    RAID work on SATA RAID, and, since I have been out of this group for so
    long, can anyone suggest a good ABIT board that I can buy that will work?
    Thank you.

    sounds like you are after an ABIT NF7-S or an ABIT AN7, although to get the
    best out of these boards you would be better off with some PC3200 (DDR400).

    May be time to eBay off some of your stuff and step up!

    Thanks Wayne, how about the other question. Are boards specifically built
    for SATA or can you use ATA on a SATA in a RAID array?

    Why not just plug the 1900+ into the KT7A-Raid?

    It is one of the first KT7A made and if I remember right it won't work,
    plus, I am keeping the KT7A up and running too.

    No, ATA Raid (like HPT-37x series controllers) will not accomodate SATA
    RAID. The motherboard model must specifically state that it has SATA
    controller on it. Most SATA controllers will also do RAID.
