IIRC, if your motherboard BIOS only supports two drives, you could use a
controller card with its own onboard ROM for additional drives to be
recognized under DOS (or Win9x). Depending on what chipset the card uses,
there might also be a driver which can enable the second channel.

Not sure if the various DMA DOS drivers would detect and add drives on the
second channel (in fact, I don't know if they work on ISA/VL IDE
controllers or if PCI is required)

What NetFlow Analyzer can do for you? Monitors network bandwidth and traffic
patterns at an interface-level. Reveals which users, apps, and protocols are
consuming the most bandwidth. Provides multi-vendor support for NetFlow,
J-Flow, sFlow and other flows. Make informed decisions using capacity
planning reports.
