I need help about Hard drive compatiablity.
My mother board says its 32bit Enhanced PCI IDE controller with ULTRA DMA/33 function.

Can I install a harddrive that is ULTRA DMA/66 or 100 ?
Thanks

Yes you can, but it will run at the speed of the controller on your motherboard. You can always upgrade to an add on ATA/100 or 133 controller. You need to also check if your BIOS will support a larger hard drive.
