Hard disk on an A4000D
Just popping in

Can I use an IDE to SATA adapter on the internal IDE of my A4000D? If so, what's the largest disk I can use? It has 3.1 roms and OS3.1 installed - I could get 3.9 if that would help.

You should be able to use it without problems, as for the biggest drive under 3.1, iirc it's 4gb and a max partition size of 2gb-1byte, upgrading to 3.9 will give you 64bit compatability so you can have partitions upto 127gb with SFS\0.

For a 4000D I'd set up 1GB for sys: 2GB for work, 4GB for games, internet, data etc.. 4GB because it's easy to backup to a DVDr also duplicat the partitions but don't automount them so you can have easily do a weekly / monthly backup to them, doesn't help if the drives dies but in case of accidental deletion etc. it's a great help.
