    2.5" hard drive in system

    Hi,

    can I simply use a 2.5" (notebook) hard drive to my EPIA 800 motherboard? The board accepts ATA66/100 IDE. But I dont know much about notebook HD's

    Can I just get the IDE converter and use a hard drive notebook?
    I read something about a ata-5 ide.

    Thanks for your help.

    yup.. get a simple 2.5" to 3.5" HD converter and plug it right into the IDE cable.
