tripple ide channels

Hi

I've got a question regarding IDEchannels.
I've recently bought the Asus A8N SLI deluxe motherboard.
It works fine but when I look under
System proporties/Device manager
in win xp pro .. I've got under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
PRIMARY IDE CHANNEL
PRIMARY IDE CHANNEL
PRIMARY IDE CHANNEL
SECONDARY IDE CHANNEL
SECONDARY IDE CHANNEL
SECONDARY IDE CHANNEL

First I thought it was just some install error so I uninstalled all IDE channels thinking that XP would reinstall just one of a kind.
But XP reinstalled three of them again.

Is there something I've missed .. or is this normal??

regards Joel
