    Bios settings to recognize SATA and two (2) IDE drives??

    texas_yankee

      I have a D945GCZ board - I recently changed my boot drive from an IDE drive to a SATA drive - I removed the ribbon cable and the old drive and plugged in the SATA cable attached to the new drive - all is working fine.  I recently inherited two IDE drives (re-formatted on an XP machine) that I'd like to use in addition to the existing SATA boot drive - but I can't figure out the correct BIOS settings to recognize the two IDE drives.  I imagine that each of the IDE drives need to be jumpered for Dual Slave and attached via the ribbon cable - what are the appropriate BIOS setting so that I can get the machine to boot off the SATA drive and still have access to the two IDE drives?  Any suggestions?  Thanks!
