Your motherboard uses the same Highpoint-tech HPT366 chip that the ABIT boards run.

I am currently using win2k with Highpoint drivers and would hope these are the same for you.

Here's the URL for these drivers:
http://www.highpoint-tech.com/Device%20Driver%20Update%20Page.htm

Don't try the the highpoint bios updates as these are most likey Abit bios's.

Install these drivers as you would any NT external "specified" setup driver.

To test have your system running from ATA33 and add the driver. If you can now see the ATA66 drives, Success.

I'm keen to hear of the results.
