My 486 Vesa local bus mother board is equipped with a I/O card with two IDE controllers. Whn I go into BIOS to selest drives it says Select DRive C, and select Drive D.
if I were to put two more hard drives on the system how would I select DRive E, and drive F when there is no option for them?

You cant do that, your BIOS will only handle 2 drives, you must get the drivers for the IDE controller card to be able to use the 2nd IDE channel.
