Casemaker:
I used to have a link for Packard Bell in Canada that was quite good for older PB's I think I must have deleted it, you won't find anything in the USA.
While the following link doesn't have anything on your mobo it might help:
http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/pb/mb/pbmbid.htm

If this computer is as old as i think it is, you will be limited to 32GB unles syou install a PCI ATA card such as a Maxtor ATA 133 PCUI card for around $30 and then you can use the new bigger disks.
The Maxtor hard drives and PCI card will come with MaxBlast software that will make an identical copy of your old drive onto the new one when set up as a slave. Then you just cahnge jumpers around and voilla you have a new 160GB C: drive.

good Luck.
