[PLUG] Retrofit IDE with SATA?

Tom's Hardware is running a story about how smart it is to upgrade your hard 
drive.  (Hmm.. sounds like they're pulling the old PC Mag trick of endorsing 
buying more stuff all the time.. how shocking!)

I've been looking to upgrade the capacity of my file server disks, but the 
motherboards my servers use are too old to have SATA interfaces.  Most newer 
disk drives all seem to be SATA.

Has anybody tried a SATA adapter card to see if you get anything like 
reasonable performance if your motherboard does not have native SATA ports?
