i assume it's okay to post a playstation 2 question here. otherwise, let me know. well i just got the network adapter for mine and notice the standard ide and power connectors on it for a harddrive. now i notice there isn't much use for having a hd yet, but i have an extra hd or 2 and want to experiment. but before i do i want to know what kind of partition and file format i should establish on it first. and i have a feeling i'll need some kind of files/software on it to get the ps2 to recognize it? oh, and should it be set to master? cable select? thanks.
