IDE ports on A7V133
I can see it has two sets of these ports. One set I guess is for standard ATA100 and the other for Raid 0. All I have is a 10GB IBM HD 7200 RPM ATA66. A 50x CD-Rom and a HP cd-burner. Right now I have the HD by itself in the blue port and I have the CD-rom and Burner slaved to each other and stuck in the Black port. Both in the non RAID ports.
It runs fine and I disabled the thing in the BIOS so it doesn't try to detect anything in the RAID ports.
Is it good like this or should I have stuff in the RAID ports?

You won't see any advantage to using the other ports... so I'd leave things where you have them as long as everything is getting along.
