hard disk, then perhaps you could use a smaller hard disk as the primary
master drive and the 40 GB hard disk as the primary slave drive. You
should be able to locate a cheap (as in price) 10 GB hard disk online or at
a local refurbished computer/parts reseller.
Alternatively, disbale the on-board IDE controller and insert an IDE board
into the computer expansion slot to handle the 40 GB hard disk.
There are no problems, only opportunities. ;-)
