Bios Upgrade

I have an older MICRON with 2 small 4 gig SCSI Seagate drives and BIOS (version Phoenix Version 4.05 W6LI S-01) that according to Micron has a limitation of 8.4 gig. They also said even if I got around the limitation with an upgrade, I would run into another limitation at 20Gig.

What I want to do is upgrade the system to about a 60Gig hardrive (non-SCSI). Can anyone suggest a way t0o do this? And if so, what type of hardrive would you recommend that would work with my onboard IDE controller?

Thanks for your help

Maybe someone else will have some tweaking advice but my personal opinion is give
that system as a gift to someone who doesn't have a computer and acquire a new system.

Old stuff isn't worth the time put in to battle incompatibilities that never stop appearing.
