Question question on IDE and Serial ATA hard drives

I'm planning on installing Mandrake 10 on my machine at home so I plan on adding another hard drive and making my machine a dual boot machine and I'm looking for an IDE hard drive. So I go online and find a cheap hard drive that fits my needs and although it doesn' t say it's IDE it doesn't explicity say that it's serial ATA either. Is this really an IDE compatible hard drive? The address for the hard drive in question is Thanks.
