    SATA verses IDE


    I am about to install Linux and Windows XP on a partitioned hard drive (dedicated for these two OSís only. The data and software apps will be on other drives). I have two choices for a drive, an 80 Gb IDE or an 80 Gb SATA drive. Are there any advantages to the SATA over the IDE on an Abit NS7 motherboard?

    As a back up for the OS drive, can I ghost it to another 80Gb drive? Can a SATA be ghosted to an IDE? Are there better options for backing up this drive?

    Thanks
