Default sata/raid and ide

hi, just upgraded my comp with a gigabyte 915p duo, asus 6600gt, 200gig sata drive.

just wondering if its possible to still run my old 40gig hdd and 20gig off the ide's? there are 3 sets of ide slots on the board, 1 im using for the dvd rom and burner, 2 unused.

thing is when i plus em into the ide, it doesnt detect

im told i need to turn off raid in the bios but cant find it anywhere.

also, if i plug in both ide's the raid program tries to set them up as a raid, and the sata is not detected.

its ok if i cant run all 3, but is it possible to run at least the sata and 1 other ide drive?

any help at all would be greatly appreciated

On my work PC I run 2 IDEs and 2 SATAs. So I guess you can too. What drive is your OS on? Are you doing a new windows install? If so, try un-plugging all the drives except the one you want windows on (make sure that it's on in BIOS) set up windows and add the drives one at a time. Thats how I did it at work and it worked great.
