How Many Hard drives does XP Pro Support?

I currently have 3 IDE hard disks in my pc but xp only recognises 2 of them? Even though the third drive is in BIOS!

Does xp pro only support 2 Hard Drives?

Some of my machines have 4 hard drives in them. Two on the main IDE connector and two on an auxiliary PCI IDE card. I have had a machine with (temporarily) 6 hard drives installed.

Is the third one formatted?

Does it show up in disk management? (Right click "my computer" and choose manage, then disk management.)
