Make sure you have the latest firmware revision or your Multia will not boot
while the IDE drive is connected. The header next to the floppy drive header is
in fact the 40 pin IDE connector. I'm not sure what to call it exactly, a
micro-40 pin header? Anyway, if your IDE drive doesnt work with the standard 40
pin cable, you will need to get one that has a power connector attached. Where
do you get these, you ask? Try here:
2.5" Drive ribbon cable - P/N 50960 - $4.85
I'm not sure where to get one like the above with the power connector.
Hopefully your drive wont need it. Mine didnt.
