So from what you say, if I have an XP system partition on one hard

hard drive should be on another IDE channel. Is this correct?
I also use a PCI card to give me an extra two IDE channels. The card
is based on the Silicon Image 0680 Ultra-133 chip.
(I don't use its RAID capability. http://tinyurl.com/a685d )
In terms of performance does it make a difference if a 7200rpm hard
drive is on one of the two IDE channels on the motherboard (whose VIA
Via 266A/8235 chipset provides ATA133) rather on one of the IDE
channels on my adaptor card?
Thanks for any info
