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??

Nothing wrong, the board comes with a dual channel PATA controller and they added another controller with another PATA controller.
