I don\'t have your answer (sorry!) but one thing I know, my Promise controller requires the latest bios to be flashed for WD drives > 137 gigs, probably all brands of huge drives. I think there was an IDE protocol limit (or something) at 137G, I wouldn\'t be surprised if a late bios flash is required for huge drives on other controllers / motherboards.
If I were to bet I bet it works and with great performance.
martin, in case there has been no answer:
besides the bios it\'s the chipset (IDE-controller) that has to support big drives first
you should find the name/manufacterer/type in your manual or device-manager
windows earlier than XP with intel-controllers may also need the inf-update, with via-controllers the latest 4-in-1-drivers
and don\'t forget to use 80-pin-cables for this drive and place the master at the end
