I have 2 SATA dives connected to my MB with XP and default settings in the BIOS.
When I copy data from one to the other the data transfer rate is about 3KB/sec. Is that normal?

Nope. Do you have your chipset drivers installed? Check the device manager for any yellow exclamation points. They require drivers.

I reinstalled the chipset drivers and now I'm getting a transfer rate of about 60MB a sec.
