Hi,
Got a P2XBL 440BX motherboard, over 2 years old now with P2 300.
I have an 8 gig master and 10 gig slave.

I need to upgrade my slave, and I want to know will it be easy to throw a new drive in (ATA 66, BIOS size etc)

Any suggestions appreciated.

It's more a motherboard question than a chipset question; I have a 60GB drive working perfectly happily on my Abit BX6 motherboard (with a BX chipset), but had to upgrade the BIOS several times as the hard disk sizes passed whatever limits they'd imposed. You'd probably do best to check for BIOS upgrades on the motherboard manufacturer's web site and see what they have on offer.
