Just one simple question, really; does the RAID5 capability of the nForce 430 southbridge extend to the PATA controller, or is it SATA only?

I have a stack of 120gb Maxtors from a salvage claim from a wrecked shipment of TiVos and I'd like to put them to use; a 360gb RAID5 would be nice. Pretty soon I'll have a spare 939 Winchester and a probably the ram to go with it; hate to see it go to waste. HTPC, here I come. . .

i have not tried this with my 430 board, BUT ive heard nvidia chipset's raid controllers treat ide and sata identically... so it SHOULD be no problem. but no garentees, at least not from me.
