Questions on new hard drive


OSNN Senior Addict
I was at CompUSA yesterday getting another fan for my rig, when I saw an 80Gig Western Digital HD for $39.95. I picked it up so that I can save Ghost images. I have two questions:
1) The new drive is only ATA100. If it is on the same IDE cable as my main ATA133 drive, will it slow down the main drive to ATA100?
2) If I wanted to dual boot this second drive on Linux, can I keep a partition on the new drive as a Windows partion so I can save Ghost images of my windows drive?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
