You could well be hitting the limits of the ATA100 drive before any
others. Also, depending on the chipset and motherboard design in place,
they may not be able to handle anything near gig-e speeds sustained.
(For example, if both the IDE and gig-e controllers are on the same PCI
bus, you'll hit the bus' limits before anything else)
You can get more with a kind word and a 2x4 than just a kind word.
