    most motherboards can take any combination of harddisks and CD/DVD upto a total of 4, and 2 floppy drives.
    It is possable to have many more disks than that by using extra controller cards (Some SCSI cards will run upto 15 drives)

    NO, two IDE channels means, you can have up to 4 drives:

    Each IDE channel can hold two drives, master drive and a slave drive:

    You could have either:

    - 4 hard drives
    - 3 hard drives + 1 CD/CD-RW/DVD drive
    - 2 hard drives + 2 CD/CD-RW/DVD drives
    -1 hard drive + 3 CD/CD-RW/DVD drives

    Serial ATA
    this is also used for harddisks, you just need to buy a Serial ATA disk instead of an IDE one

    Yea, RAID/SCSI is very expensive and not worth it for the average user.
