Regarding Hard drive controllers, etc..

1. Drives larger than your motherboard supports would need a seperate IDE controller card.

2. IDE RAID arrays. Although, you may be able to perform data recovery with the drive connected as a normal IDE drive.

3. Serial ATA. This is the newest drive interface.


5. Firewire

6. RLL /MFM (depending on how old a system you wish to support.
