How would this work then?
Now: all 4 IDE drives on primary/secondary ( master slave)
Alternate: add a PCI ide card.  Split things up with two drives going  
the the IDE card ( master master )
So 4 masters essentially.  Would an IDE card give two seperate BUS channels?

Is the alternate idea worth it?
