you don't need two drives for cd-r-rw and dvd-r-rw, one dvd drive will do it all. Something like a Plextor or NEC dvd drive is good and inexpensive

How can you not find a board with them. I think just about every board has ide support.

you must have used ide before! hard disks, cd drives, pplug into them! you must have! its a 40 pin connector. the pins are in two rows creating a long thin connector.

yes like every motherboard has 2 of these connectors supporting 4 devices.
