I fried a beautiful, brand new Extreme6 motherboard; tried to find another and couldn't; and had to settle for one of the $40 refurb Asrock A75 Pro4 boards. Nonetheless, I built it! It works! Sorry folks, old news to you motherboard pros but a major learning experience for me.

I'm trying to get two IDE-Adapter'd drives to show, but nothing works. I've tried 2 different card-adaptor strategies (no joy) and I'm wondering if this is related to the sea of yellow !! marks showing up in Device Manager. I'm using XP Pro and appreciate any help you can give.
