    SCSI is a different interface to hook the drive to. IDE, EIDE, ATA and UltraATA, ATA66, ATA100 are all terms for different speeds of the same type of connector. These connectors are motherboard specific. All IDE up to ATA100 are backwards compatible. For basic definitions: http://thetechnozone.com/pcbuyersguide/PCbuyersguide-Glossary.htm
