Oddly enough, I was just shopping for a 24" ide cable @ www.ncix.com
and thought I'd check the forums to see if anyone's tried them yet.
Looks like I'll be trying a couple of 24" ATA100 cables.
Are there any problems (data errors or slower transfer rates) with the 24" cables? The standard 18" are about 3" short of reaching my PCI ATA66 add on card in the bottom of the case (drives are at top of 5 1/2 bay in tower case).
