    Well first of all I have A spare PII Celeron kicking around that works perfectly fine so I was thinking I could put my 200GB WD in it for file storage and what not, but of course the computer wont detect it and I have already checked into a bios update on that board and the company told me it will ever only see 60GB max with an update.

    So.. is there any other way around this? I have a lil 6GB in it that I can run windows from if I need to.

    The only this I can think of is some sorta USB or PCI device that I'm not aware of. Any suggestions?
