    If you want to know more about hard drives and what makes them tick, then this is a good place to start off.

    SATA is one per channel. SCSI cards can support as many as 14.

    A channel is pretty much the connector on the mobo or addin card. Primary and secondary ide channels are usually referred to in mobo manuals as ide0 and ide1, ide0 being the primary.
