I would like to add a 2nd hard drive to the motherboard IBM NetVista A22p 229223U Intel Pentium 4 1.6 GHz. I see two ribbon slots occupied by the one hard drive and the DVD player. Is there another slot on this board to add a hard drive? Or can I doubble up on the ribbon?

You could add a SATA card to  computer and then you would have at lease 2 port for a hard drive.

One port for internal harddrive and one for external harddrive

This would make a good card if you are considering to add an harddrive for backing up or extra storeage

External SATA drive are great to have around and fast http://www.buy.com/cat/external-esata-hard-drive/64265.html

This IBM NetVista A22p 229223U Intel Pentium 4 1.6 GHz is an old 2001 computer.  I'll accept this as the solution if I can be sure this MB will accept the SATA card.  Will it?
Thanks

As long you have a free pci slot and running at least windows 98 you should not have a problem.
