You could plug it into the chain with your DVD drive, but access will be slow. I have seen a few adapters that can turn it into a SATA drive. If I can find one on newegg, I'll like you.

You do have one Parallel ATA IDE port on the motherboard you can use for it. You can connect it to the same cable as your DVD drive.
