Default Installing a 3rd Harddrive

I was wondering if it is possible to install a 3rd Harddrive.

Currently in one of my system's I have a raid set up, both using the SATA slots.

I was wondering if I could install a 3rd harddrive using the IDE slot as a Drive F or w/e it would be. Also if it is possible would I have to do anything special or would it just work?

Thanks.

So what do I do, just stick the Harddrive into the IDE 2 slot and its all set? Or when I boot it up do I have to go into bios and set it to slave?

No, set the jumper on the slave pins..they attach with IDE and power, and off you go.
