I Happen To see Your Message Do You Think I Can Accomplish This Going This Way
I Have An Asus Motherboard With 3112 Raid Controller Built In. I Did Not Set 
Them Up For Raid Configuration. I am Using Windows XP Pro Sp2 I. Want To Add 
Another 3112 PCI Card To Give Me 2 More SATA Inputs. My System Is Already 
Operational With The Internal 3112. Will I Have Any Problems Adding This New card? 
I Want to Add another Raptor Drive And A SATA Plextor 16 x DVD DVD RW Drive. 
Not In The Raid configuration. I Just Want To Add another Harddrive To Clone To 
For Backups.
My Mb model Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe. I Can't Flash The BIOS Or My System Crashes 
And Some Of The Programs I Have On This Computer Can't Be Reactivated. So I 
Went Back To The BIOS It Had When XP Pro Was Installed For The First Time. This 
Is The NTFS File System.

Thank You For Your cooperation In This Matter.
Hope This Will Work Without Any Problems.
I Have 3 Open PCI Slots.
I Have A PCI 3112 Controller Board with SATA Cable.
If I Plug It In To A PCI Slot Will It Come UP Just Like Any other Device Does 
When It Is Installed For The First Time. I Have Drivers Already In XP For The 
Onboard 3112 Controller Chip And I Am Booting From The First SATA Raptor 
Drive At The Present Time, And The Second Raptor Drive Is Used For My Swap File 
And Temp Video Data. Will There Be Any Conflicts With Using Them Both Being A 
3112 Host Controller Chip And PCI Card Together Working At The Same Time.
