Interesting indeed. The old computer has a 40GB hard drive which I assume is IDE and I have a 40GB SATA harddrive on the way from ebay. The DVD burner is I suppose IDE - I boughit two years ago and only found out yesterday that SATA applies also to optical drives!

I propose to use the SATA as the "main drive" with the old one for experiments with Linux... But this will still be a "second computer" - really just in the hope I can learn something without significant risk!

Best wishes
