Other Thoughts:I needed to install a larger capacity hard drive in ma Win98SE system. This card did the trick.
NOTE: When installing, Win98SE did not accept any of the drivers on the included disc. The accepted driver was downloaded from the "Silicon Image" Web site. It is the: "SIL 0680 ULTRA-133 MEDLEY ATA RAID CONTROLLER."
Other Thoughts:I'm not sure about the problems others here had.
<br/>I plugged the card in a pci slot.
<br/>Booted up computer.
<br/>XP recognized it and asked for the drivers.

<br/>My Master drive is a sata.
<br/>I had 2 ATA IDE drives from my old system that I wanted to add to my new computer.
