Connect/Install an EIDE drive with an SATA drive

I have an SATA drive running on my ASUS PC4800-E MB. I want to ad my WD600 HD from my old system. I am using SATA1 connection on the MB (works fine), but when I try to connect the WD600 IDE drive via the Primary IDE I get a "Blue" screen saying that windows has a fault. The BIOS reads the drive correctly and the BOOT drive is the Western Digital "raptor" SATA. What can I do to get these two working together?

    What is the EXACT error message from the Blue Screen?

    I was going to recreate the steps that gave me the blue screen to write the message down...but I started tinkering in the BIOS setup. Good news! I reconfigured the BOOT sequence and the PRI, SEC, and Third IDE controller settings and it worked!

    Thanks for responding, though!
