Here is the manual:

the built in hard
drive controller on the 6BXC only does the slower ATA-33 speeds, and has
limitations on size.

It might work, but with possible limitations and errors...

An ATA 100 drive will slow to ATA 33 on that board. It's not as though it won't work at all. Also that motherboard is likely not 48-bit LBA compliant so the bios won't properly see a drive larger than about 120 gig.

You best bet is to buy an ATA 100 or ATA 133 card and attach the drive there. That way you fully utilize the drive's speed and capacity.

Onward to 300

Depending on which southbridge chip the Aopen uses it's either ATA 66 or ATA 100:

Couldn't find any info an a "gigabyte ca61". Are you sure you got the manufacturer and/or model number right?
