Glad you are up 'n running!
For future readers - some motherboards require specific sata ports for hard-drives.(check yer manuals!)
Other Sata ports are made - just for Optical drives etc
The new 6GBs hard drives also need certified 6Gbs cables to connect with if your motherboard supports these speeds - yer old cables only probably support up to 1.5/3Gbs (supplied with older m/boards)
