In addition to Tom and Shridhar's advice, a single IDE disk is simply going to 
make restores slow.   A 500MB data file copy on that disk, straight, would 
take up to 15 min.   If this is for your ISV application, you need to 
seriously re-think your hardware strategy; spending less on processors and 
more on disks would be wise.
