Hello info ds,
The IDE channel for CDROM is meant for CDROM only. You wont be able to use the IDE hard drive on that channel unfortunately. Once your server has been configured with the SCSI hard drive you can always use a third party IDE controller to install an IDE hard drive in the system.

Hello,
Yes you can do it. But do configure the basic system first and then add on the IDE controller.

Hello Mathias,
I have used PCI IDE controller by Maxtor and by Promise. Both of those worked flawlessly. I am not sure about the part nos. You can surely find those on the respective parts. If you come across any difficulties finding those please let me know I shall locate them for you.
