Naslite+ does not support these cards, But Naslite V2 does. check out the documents you can download in the v2 section of this website.

robbansson,

To my understanding, NASLite+ supports up to 4 IDE drives and you can only use the onboard (built-in) IDE controllers - PCI IDE host controllers are not supported.

This is, of course, considering that you're not booting from the CD-ROM (which would use one of the four IDE "slots"). For my NASLite+ box, I followed a method that I found here on the forum where I copied data from the bootable CD to a USB flash drive, so I boot to the USB flash drive instead of the bootable CD. Additionally, since my BIOS is older and doesn't support booting to USB, I made a "kicker" floppy, so what I really do is boot to the floppy, then the floppy makes the PC boot to the USB flash drive. This allows me to use 4 IDE drives, and it's essentially the same as using "NASLite+ for USB flash".
