hi, I just bought an older pentium 2 ibm aptiva. it came with a 4 gb scsi hd. I want to add in an ide drive, but I have a few problems. first of all, I can't get this computer to recognise the ide port at all, second, I don't know how to set it up as a master/slave system since the two drives use different formats. when I plug in the ide drive (a quantum fireball 15 gb) i get nothing; the system only reads off of the scsi. can anybody help??

welcome to TSG

have you looked around the setup area of the BIOS, to see if you can enable it to boot from IDE? (if that's the end goal)

there's also a possibility the IDE Controllers are disabled in there
