Speaking of udma66, what's the deal with these fancy udma cables with 80
conductors? Since there are only 40 pins at either end, what's the deal
with having 80 conductors. Do 40 go to one hard drive and 40 to another?
Can one do udma66 with a 40 conductor cable? While I'm asking da questions,
what's different between udma33 and udma66 apart from speed? Does 33->66
imply some difference in the ata command set?
