Re: PCI IDE controllers
So what you are saying is that you want to run more than one IDE harddrive? If that's not it then I really don't understand what you are asking.
To connect both of your IDE drives you need an IDE cable with two connections running off it so you can connect both HDD's with a single cable. You then set one to primary and the second as a slave drive using the jumpers on the back. If you want to connect a SATA harddrive then you will need a SATA controller so yeah you'll need to buy one in the form of a PCI interface card if your motherboard doesn't already have an integrated SATA controller.
Same goes for the CD-ROMs. If you want to connect two of them then you need an IDE cable with two connection on it. There is no reason to be needing 3 cd-rom drives so I don't understand why you want to add the 3rd.
