> Should I use the ide drive as my main drive?
This is up to you. I personally would not bother using any drive that
is 3 years old or more as an OS drive.
> Are there any issues with using ide and sata in the same system?
No. At least I have not seen this on dozens of linux machines at wor.

ext4 for both. ext3 is annoyingly slow for large file operations. xfs
is slow for small files.

Does not really make a big difference if the optical drive is SATA or ide.

Make sure you setup your system for vdpau.
