    I am looking to add a second hard drive on my new Dual 1.8 G5.
    Can I use Ultra ATA instead of Serial ATA?
    Thanks in advance.

    Nope. Serial ATA all the way. There is room for one additional SATA drive in PowerMac G5 towers.

    There is no provision for Parallel ATA (U-ATA or EIDE) hard drives.
