I have 2 IDE hard drives and a CD and DVD. I heard somewhere that there is a third channel. I may have missed it in the manual.

Third & fourth channel are your 2 SATA ports/controllers. Each controller can only have 1 sata HD attached to it, no slave. On my p4p800dlx I presently have 1 80 gig on primary IDE, 1 80 gig on primary VIA controller and 1 160 gig on primary sata. I also have 2 optical drives on secondary IDE. Plan to add another SATA to the secondary sata port, although a bit slower than IDE in transfer rates, it does free up some IDE / VIA ports.
