You're right - tis a 440BX Intel Motherboard - ultra dma 33 - is that 33 meg
a second? I'm currently looking at getting a new hd in eager anticipation of
dsl, and I don't think the maxtor 30 gigi yke on dabs is capable of much
more than that!
Where do I get the 80 pin cable - read up on maxtors site last night - the
extra 40 are grounding or something.
Also, where do I change the setting for ultra dma - I know that I've to set
the HDs to CS, but do I have to play with BIOS?

If you have Linux running, you can check what chipset it has.
I suspect, given that it's a PIII-450 from Gateway, that it'll be
an intel chipset, almost definitely a BX, and so your
board will only do UDMA-33 (the 810 chipset IIRC was the
first Intel chipset to support UDMA-66).
If it's not Intel, then you might have a chance, but I don't
remember Dell or Gateway using any other chipsets in their Intel
home boxes (for servers, Dell use Serverworks a lot now :))
