If your new motherboard has an IDE port (some of them do, for CD Rom drives) then you could just plug your old IDE hard drive into that IDE port.

You'd have to unplug one of your Cd Rom drives on the new computer, but only long enough to retrieve your files from the old drive.

You could use that I guess, but I don't see much use in it. Unless you have no other choice.

If it were me, I take the covers off the old and the new computer. Look to see if the new computer has an IDE port. If it does, I'm sure your old computer is using an IDE drive, so it'll plug right up long enough for you to move your data over.
