Well, basically I already have four IDE devices - 3 HDDs and a CDROM.

Also... there seems to be a problem with copying from IDE1 to IDE0... as
in ripping a CD onto hda1/ I don't know why, maybe my hda1 is faulty,
maybe my MBoard is... in any case, I need to do this backup in less than
20 days so I don't have time to replace drives/mboards...
