a couple of technical questions

I have an Asus a7s333 M/B with following characteristic:
2 x UltraDMA 100/66 IDE interface
What does the 100/66 mean? Can i add the disc with following characteristic:
Maxtor D740X-6L 40GB ata 100?

Are there many kinds of SDRAM? Can an SDRAM be both ECC and EDO?
Are all SDRAMS and all M/Bs, which use SDRAM compatible with each other?

It's just the IDE speed. The MB will run at 33/66/100 mhz and the HDD is a 100, so no problems. You could also use a 133 HDD in the box, but it would only run at ATA100... The interfaces tend to be backward compatible both ways, so you rarely have trouble...

It's only the new SATA drives which are different...
