It is clear from my searches that I need a card to use the space on my hard drives, but there has been no mention of preferred cards. I understand the advantage of external drives, but I don't have the space for any more junk on my desk. Past that, I am currently wasting 170 gigs of IDE space.

I need a PCI SATA card for my 733MHz G4 tower, running OSX 10.4.11. The mother board is dead stock.

I would like to boot from a drive on this card and have System Profiler recognize the drives on it. I want to use the stock Disc Utility to administer it.

I know. I want too much.
